Bloody drain holes!

Recommended Posts

Ok - I'm getting paranoid about these bloody drain holes. I tried to have a look today. Here's what I came up with.

 

Put the roof in this position.

Is this the hole?

I tried pouring a jug of water down it. It all came pouring out of the sill around where the intake air vent is. A drop came out from behind the intake as well.There doesn't appear to be a single point of output that I could see anyway.

 

Looks to me a lot like the issues with 986/987 with blocked drain holes might not be relevant to 981/718? Correct me please?

Yep, they are the drain holes.

I think they are the same but different IYSWIM

On the passenger side, there appears to be a rubber "gutter" connected to a black flexible pipe, can't see any drain holes lower down

On the drivers side there is a large drain hole (complete with sycamore leave in my car but haven't got anything long enough to reach it!) and again a rubber gutter connected to a flexible pipe

A bit of googling on US of A forums found the drain holes appear to come out by the side vents:blink: In his notes there was loads on pine needles and dirt etc in these outlets

Yep that’s the correct hole or drain. Trombone cleaner from amazon does the job. 

I have to do mine every 2-3 months or I can hear water sloshing around and a wet seatbelt

I was at at a PCGB this morning - 35 pork - loads of Boxsters - put my roof half way up and asked for a bit of help checking that I was doing things right with my drain holes - what did I get ? guys scratching their heads saying they never cleaned theirs out !!

It took one of the other lady Boxster owners (their are only 4 of us ladies within driving distance of Sazzy  including me ) to confirm what I thought and that I need to get a bigger trombone cleaner,but need to make sure I don't split the gromit - I mean - how hard do you have to poke it without causing a split in it 😱

So you are telling us you need to look for a cleaner with more girth and length?  Sounds sensible 🤔

We all know it's how you use it that counts 😉
