2009 C2S 50K miles

I poured some water on the closed roof and water drained into the car from two places around the panel. (It actually seeps in everywhere but two, two inche lines poured in unabated.)

Any tips? Questions:

- What brand/type of solvent should I use?
- Where to I apply the adhesive to? The leading metal edge or at all contact surfaces?
- How do I get the trim to match up tightly? Slide and work it?

About $100 with shipping from Pelican.

When the car leaked, a drip from the dome light, the car was canted forward in a parking lot and I suspect the inflow exceeded outflow rate and it filled up. So I figure I can decress the inflow rate by installing a new gasket. I checked the drains and they are clear.... I pulled the front wheel liners and ran some weed wacker line up until it came out at the sun roof.. By the way, it appears to be an odd design as the water drain hole is way high in the wheel well and just drips all over everything in there including an electronic module near the rocker panel gets soaked.

Of course I worry that I will make a bigger mess of it.

Hi Bruce, You have more than a gasket problem. You can replace it. Any old contact or rubber cement will do. BUT, there is a drain up there and it is plugged. No water should ever get into the car even with a bad gasket. I am not sure where the drain is and where it exits but when I have a chance I'll take a look at my car. JFP may know where it is.

      My 2011 Cayenne S has possible sunroof drain leaks.  I wanna remove the headliner and address the tubes.  Any instructions on taking down the headliner?  FYI,  I have cleaned out the drains in the wheel arches.  Also drained the water in the frame under the sills.  No more sloshing sound.
       
      Thanks.

      When I went out to the garage this morning I saw a puddle in front of the left front wheel. I thought I had a bad radiator but when I got in and took a look it appears that the leak is coming at the connection between the breather tube and the radiator, check out the picture. So, my question is this; is this a bad radiator or a bad breather hose?
       
      Thanks!

      Hey everyone,
      I am new on this forum. Was recommended to create a topic about my problem here.
      Its a Cayenne S V8 2011 petrol
      Recently noticed oil leaking from the front area (left side of the car). See the Picture:)
      Porsche workshop is not fully sure yet about exactly where its leaking from. They think its from the oil pan and to find the exact place or fix it, they will have to take motor out and as well gearbox as I understood. They have recommended me to drive it 1000km and come back again for the check-up.
      They say its coming somewhere from the oil pan, but coulld as well be from somewhere above the oilpan.
      Thought post it here, and check if someone have had this kind of problem on their 958 or know about it. It leaks only when the car is running.
       
      Thanks for all the help I can get:)

      Had a puddle when warm, from the drivers side front (coolant leak as discoloured the drive). 
      Common problem so took the wheel off with it facing as far right as possible, then, If I recall, 7 screws to remove the plastic cover of the inner wheel arch (torxs)
      Bottom of the 2 pipes were the problem on mine
      The 2 ends of the pipe means you will need a big bucket to catch all the fluid,
      There will be a something like a 3mm wire cir-clip that retains the hose, one at each end, make sure it is well clear or take it off all together, its easy to get back on.
      then just pull the hose off and get wet.(image)
      The leaking end had been bodged before so was I had to wiggle for a while, don't forget the car is on jacks so don't pull too hard.
      then release the other end, I must have releases a good 3 litres of coolant out of the car.
      The new hose (image) is apparently silicone based, and I read that you are not to use silicone lubricant on silicon hoses?
      So you will have to decide on what to put on the hose to aid insertion.
      Clean everything as much as you can, then push the new hose and put back the clips on both ends (test pull to see if well located).
      With the Gen2 (might be cayman and boxster the coolant refill should be done with a full drain as per other tutorials, but to refill and bleed you have to remove the engine cover and find the 
      bleed valve as per image. not in the boot as gen1( as I understand)
      Check for leaks

      Has anyone had any experience with transmission Fluid leak on automatic, tiptronic 986, its by the front driver side tire, only about a half cup's worth.  The car is an 03 with 107k miles, I have had the ims bearing taken care of and replaced the rms, no oil leaks.   The air pump, fuel pump and aos have all been replaced with in the past 10k miles... at my last service mechanic stated that the transmission wiring harness would be the next thing to fail based on the mileage of the vehicle.  Has anyone had any experience w this? Could this be the cause of the leak? ... any insight would be appreciated
