How to remove rear side carpet to access convertible top drain hole

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

Long time no see.

So I still have my trusty old 996, 21 years now and she's a darling.

Iv'e giot the water in the back seat well problem so I am fairly certain its a clogged drain hole.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the side carpet (below the rear speaker) so that I can get to the drain hole sump.Thanks in advance

Hi, sorry to hear about the water issue. I had a boxster that was totalled because water got into the car.  I'm not aware of any drain inside the car. The hole that got clogged on my 986.2 was in the convertible well.  When the top is up in the 'maintenance' position, you should see the drain (on the right side) of the well. When this gets clogged, the water spills into the car.

Hi Thanks for your response, however I have looked with the top in maintenance position on my 996. I can just about see the currogated tube at the side of all the linkage gubbins but there no way to access the water collection well. The only option I can see is to remove the side carpets but I dont know how to do that and was wondering if anyone does.

The 986 convertible top is entirely different to the 996 so its not surprising.
