water leak
 
Hi to all,

I own a 2000 Porsche Boxster and I just found out that when I park the car specially at a downhill angle, and it rains, the carpet behind the passenger seat is getting wet, at times a fair bit if it rains for long or heavily.

Any suggestions where to start looking for leaks please?

Thanks and cheers,
Rob

Check if your rear drain holes are clogged. Here is Mike Focke's article on drain holes.

Might want to get that cleaned out sooner than later. ECU under the drivers seat and you DON'T want that getting wet.

Just went through this with a 98 boxster and the drains are the place to start and very easy to check. I'n my case, there was a small tear in the passenger side foam forward of the drain hole and under the are where the forward two top frame bolts attach to the car.

Pour some water in the foam tray and look for leaks as well as proper drain function.

BTW, there is substantial foam padding under the carpet. The foam was saturated with water and I ended up removing the carpet from the car for a few days to dry it out. There was no way I could get all of the water out if I'd have left the carpet in the car.

I think this explains why my right foot gets wet when turning right on a hot day with the AC running.....front middle drain blocked. Thanks for posting
