Convertible Top Drain Pan Hose Replacement

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace the convertible top drain pan hose?  I will be replacing the drain pan also.  Can you see the hose and how to install it after the drain pan is removed? Can the hose be removed and reinstalled from above, or do you you also need access from under the car?  Where is the drain hose clamp located?  Is it likely to need replacement also?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

It's a straightforward repair but you will have to remove the convertible top and frame to get proper access to remove the drain tray.


Once you remove the drain tray, you will see a small teacup-like shaped "funnel" to which the drain hose is attached.  You will have to have access from the bottom as well so that you can properly route the new hose.


I'm wondering how you determined that you need a new drain hose.  If there is a leak in that area, it's most often caused by a crack in the "teacup" or the hose has become detached from it.

The pushrod ball broke, the push rod bent and eventually became lodged in the drain hole, tearing the drain tray and crushing the drain tube cup.  I have not removed the drain tray yet, but this appears to be the case based on what I feel by sticking my finger in the drain hole.  It appears that the cup is part of the drain tube part #98756173400. Do you agree that the cup is a part of the drain hose part #98756173400 ?   Maybe they are both included in the part number, but I could just replace the teacup?  Can you see the drain hose clamp ( part #99950755101 ) from above?


Thanks for your reply!

The cup and drain tube are one piece and you are better off replacing the entire part rather than just replacing the teacup.


The part number that you have listed is for the passenger side, so make sure that is the side that you need.


There probably won't be a need to replace the clamps that hold the tube in place but they are cheap enough to buy so that you can have them on hand.  The parts diagram shows that there are 4 needed.  Not sure is that is two for each side.


You should also probably remove the forward piece of the rear wheel well liner so that you can see where the drain hose exits.


Regards, Maurice.
