Rain tray replacement tutorial

Hey Everyone,
I got a new rain tray (thanks for the pointers on the problem), but I can't find a tutorial on replacement here, on Pelican, or on Youtube.
Anyone got a link?
Thanks,
Jonny

Which vehicle? Boxster's don't have a "rain tray", 911's do. If by rain tray, you mean the plastic part that goes under the wiper cowl, it's pretty simple. Remove the cowl, the tray is directly beneath just snaps in place. If you mean that on the 911 or Cayman models, that goes between the inlets on the rear deck over the engine.

I believe he's talking about the foam inserts that are located where the convertible mechanisms are located. Here I am the parts guy and I dont even know what they're called. As for replacing them, you'll want to remove your top. Three bolts on each side, tension cable and the control arm. It takes about 15 minutes and it helps if you have someone there with you. Once you get the top out of the way it's pretty self-explanatory.
