Hi all. washed the car the other day and opened the passenger door to find water dripping from the bottom of the door card !
Anyone else had this problem ?
Would it be the window seal ?
Thanks.

Its the door membrain which is not sealing , on a 997 then its a tin plate with a bonding strip which seals it .

This will need replacing .

no. 18 here ..

Sounds like the door membrane has failed - feel the bottom of the carpet on the door where it folds under the door, chances are its soaking wet & letting water in.

On the 997 the door membrane is a metal unit with a foam type bead which seals against the door. On earlier 996 models it was a foam panel with adhesive.

I replaced a passenger side door membrane on my 987 (same part for 997), from memory it cost about £200 including the part / fitting at the OPC.

very common problem with the 997 , my indy brookspeed and I am sure others have a fix for it , they remove the door card and run a rubber bead around the same place as the original was and then refit the door card it has worked for me on both my gen1 doors and my gen2 drivers door. Thumb

Silicone would certainly seal it .. but if your window regulator fails and needs replaceing then i for one wouldn,t like to have to try and get that panel off to replace it lol .

Might i sugest something like windscreen butil if your going to seal it .. it will stop leaks but also allow the panel to be removed should you need to do so .

This stuff ...
