996 cabriolet water damage

Recommended Posts

Hi, my 996 cabriolet got water in it as the drain was gummed up with hydraulic fluid leaking from a roof cylinder/pump. The car flooded after a heavy rain and I had to replace the immobilizer. I put the hardtop on hoping it covered most of the cabriolet mechanism roof seams/cracks. Does anyone know if with the hard top covers the seams/cracks that drain down inside the wheel well area? Dows all water from the roof seams go down that drain? I’m hoping there is a secondary in the back for the other seams until I get to clean the drain tube. Thanks.

Sorry can't answer that but I have a related question that someone might be able to answer at the same time as yours.


I replaced the rear speakers on my cab and noticed the corrugated tubing that is clipped to the drain channels was loose on both sides (ie it wasn't connected to anything at its higher end as it had gone hard, cracked and fallen off whatever it connects to.)


Now I have everything in bits to replace a soft top hydraulic ram pipe, I still can't see where it should go.


Has anyone got a pic from their car showing this drain pipe and what it connects to on its upper end.
