Condensation in Sports Chrono clock

Recommended Posts

Noticed this today (had noticed before but kinda ignored it). A perfect circle of condensation on inside of SC clock

Anyone else see this and have a magic solution other than removing, dismantling and thoroughly drying out?

Maybe stick a couple of those microwaveable dehumidifier packs in the car, assuming it happens when it’s stood about.

 

Yep, already got one in there!

you can unscrew the chrono without dismantling it, i swapped out the faces on mine which meant the whole thing had to come out but anticlockwise and the whole glass face will unscrew.

When my 981 was new the original owner complained about this after 1.5 years of use. Porsche stated it was normal as it does happen sometimes.

I long debate ensued and ultimately they paid half towards the replacement cost of a new one.

Flash forward to present day................The replacement still has the same problem 😉

They sure did as he requested to see the old one. He remembers it had a very minute mark to the bottom right of the bezel where he had hit it with his phone 😂. They also replaced the heater matrix as it was in for a recall.

Mine does this @Withy, got the usual “they all do that sir” at an OPC, same with the rear light clusters, often condensation in them although I can more understand - though not accept on a £60k car. Porsche even have pics in technical bulletin the OPC showed me re the rear lights.

Me too, it's certainly not suitable for diving. I recall asking for them to change mine out under warranty and they rejected it and provided a picture from their literature showing what level of condensation substantiated a claim. I recall it was much worse than the above.

Probably an easy fix if you can remove it, dry it out and seal it up.

Seems "Normal" then.  A while back when I was the proud owner for a 987.1S, this never happened on it's SC clock.  Ah well.  Progress :S

Be more concerned about that scratch on your dash, is that Joyeauto related injury? A bit of heat in that area may help blend it.

Yeah I noticed the same thing only on the photo (and how filthy the SC Clock is!). will check it out tomorrow - can't recall causing any damage, but yep, heat gun if required!
