Well, after thinking my roof leak was fixed it seems that I was a bit premature in my thinking. The leak is back, drivers side carpet sodden, pax side damp. Looks like a call to the OPC again on Monday. Oh, and I stand by my earlier comment..... no pano roof for me on the next car......

Cleaning out the drain hole in the fuel filler cap area?
Pop it round, for £120 I’ll do it for you!😉😉
correction - it was bulkhead (so I assume below windscreen) not fuel filler cap

Received a call from the service team who are completing a 111 point so that I can extend the warranty. Apparently I have a drainage duct blockage and it will cost me £200 to resolve.

Will update once I have spoken to them to try and argue the validity.

The Porshce procedure for clearing the ducts is to feed a wire up from the exit which in both cases is behind the wheel arch liners so requires them to be removed - so basically the charge is for labour to remove / refit the liners.

The front ducts are accessible from the top so you could feed something down, although as the debris enters from the top it would make more sense to feed from the bottom as Porsche recommend. The rear ducts aren't accessible without removing the glass so you can only really do it from the bottom.

I would challenge on the basis of design not fit for purpose?

Don't think you'll get far with that. Try telling a house builder your roof guttering isn't fit for purpose when it gets blocked by moss & leaves...

OPC also told me they trim the ends of the duct as they narrow at the bottom which obviously makes the issue more likely
