Where is it coming from?


Any help in finding out where the leak is coming from from these water marks would be appreciated. After a heavy rain both door carpets wet soaked below the speakers.

Given the leak location, my best guess is one of these two parts (or both) is defective:
  • 996 537 532 05 - sealing for door slot
  • 996 537 532 06 - inner gasket

If the leak begins just behind the windshield, then it might be: 986 537 077 02 windshield frame gasket

Just replace the weather stripping around the window on the convertible top.

I get leaks from that location when the door is open. Luckily the weather stripping does it's job when my door/window is closed.

The "weather stripping" you are talking about is a $1200.00 dollar item as it is integrated into the top seal. This is not a cheap venture if you choose to go this route. If you think I am kidding:

The parts I suggested looking are not the weather stripping associated with the convertible top. They are either on the door or the windshield pillar. Still, they are expensive - a couple of hundred bucks each - as the Pelican Parts site shows

I'd call up a couple of Porsche specialty dismantlers first and see what they have to offer.
