Mystery plastic clip found in drip tray

Recommended Posts

Now that we are getting some rain in California it seems my wife's '06 boxster has been hit with the dreaded blocked drain tube problem and water is seeping in under the passenger seat.  I discovered this over the weekend and removed the blockage at the top and the water seemed to drain out and I thought problem solved.  Wrong.  Today I drove her car and there's water in it again,  It was a like a terrarium at the end of the day.  I've read the other threads on cleaning out the tube which I will try this weekend.


When I cleaned out the tray I found this plastic clip which has apparently broken off of something and was part of the drain blockage problem, makes a nice cork at the top.   Anyway I looked around and didn't find anything obviously missing in the roof mechanism.   Can anyone tell me what this clip is from?

I figured what this is.  The ball socket on the convertible top pushrod tubes broke off.  This seems to be a common problem and Porsche only sells the entire arm with the socket but I'm going to order up a replacement set if just the end cups here: http://isiplanet.com/987.html
