PostPosted: Tue Dec 19, 2017 7:05 pm    Post subject: Wet Rear Carpet...Soaking Wet! Reply with quote

I have been pulling out most of the interior to fit a complete new audio installation, the carpet in the rear footwells is absolutely soaking wet, I mean sodden!!! Now I am hoping the water has come from the door panels, the usual problem with the inner panel seal that disintegrates, I fixed this last month permanentlyI hope, no more wet door carpets anyway!

Is there anywhere else that water might creep in? I just want to be sure that the wet carpet is the remnant from the door leak. I have been getting a lot of condensation in the last few weeks which is obviously from the wet rear and haven't used the car much while I have been stripping out the interior panels so maybe it has't had time to dry! Everywhere else is dry, front carpets, rear deck etc.!

Just want to be sure!!!

Have you got a sunroof?

On a 996 its the sunroof drains that get blocked causing the sodden rear carpets.

The drain exits in the rear passenger side wheel arch.

Yes, I do have a sunroof and I thought this might be the cause, but I have checked the drain today, poured water into the sunroof channels and it drained fine, out int the rear wheel arches!

Is there anywhere this pipe might leak, even if it is draining ok?

Not sure then, perhaps they are not 100% clear ? and the water is both draining via the drain and you are getting some ingress into the car via the overflowing channels Confused

Is it the rears behind both seats that is getting wet, when I had the blocked drain it just effected passenger side - if you are seeing both side wet perhaps suggests something other than the sunroof drains?

But I think over to Demort and those more knowledgable than myself.....

Yes, it's just the rear only, I will have to try and trace the pipes from the sunroof channel, I guess it is routed down through the C pillar somewhere?

Don't let water get anywhere near the "rear control unit" under the
Passenger seat.

My son kicked a water bottle under there after Simply Porsche 2017.

Frunk locked , Sunroof stuck open , No rear parking sensor, Spoiler jammed up

£500 + to replace and fit / code frustrated


Couldn't be bothered... So I bought the GTS instead Grin

Just in case you havent fixed this yet then look at the seal along side the rear side window as this is actually a drain .. see picture .

Thanks Dermot, I did look at this at the weekend but don't understand what you mean by the seal also being a drain? Dont know The pic shows someones finger pulling the seal away, is there a drain here and where does it drain to?
