Porsche Boxster Water Leaks

Reasons for Water Leaks in Porsche Boxster Models

Blocked drains are a prevalent factor contributing to water leaks in Boxster models. The convertible roof features a design where water collects in the catchment tray, (unlike earlier models) the more recent variants, have drain tubes equipped with an end filter that may become obstructed by debris, leading to potential blockages and water leakage.

The images below show the blocked drain tube filter our technicians have removed from a Porsche Boxster 981.

To reduce future issues, our team remove the filter to allow water to flow freely through the tubes to help eliminate blockages.

Here is an image of the roof mechanism, featuring the primary drip tray positioned at the top. Its role is crucial—it captures and redirects water into the drain tubes. Without proper drainage, this is the point where overflow would occur, potentially leading to water seeping into the interior of the car.
