My local dealership mechanics send the car out to a body shop to have the mounting area reinforced. I have never see the work done so I do not know how it is done.

If you have this done then see if you can take some pictures.
The body shop that the local porsche dealer sent mind to has never done this before, so they are waiting to hear from porsche reps on how they could fix the problem. yeah for sure will take some pics, if they ever fix it
