Blocked Drains during the rebuild

While rebuilding car today, I found a fair bit of water on the floor , behind one of the seats (not the ECU side luckily. I pulled the carpet up and the sponge was sodden. I'm guessing the drain hole is blocked but where is it ? and whats best method to clear it. Thanks guys... Other than that the car is coming on great, only arch liners and undertray to go and it's about done. more pics on the way

open your top half way and look down on the side of the engine cover with a flashlight you will see the drainhole you could use something flexible to push thru or air pressure.

Or, they might be clogged in the front, which is where mine are always clogged. I have an article coming out on carpet drying and replacement. In the meantime, you need to remove everything that holds down the carpet, lift it up and then put some electric heaters blowing on the underside for a couple of days. It *will* dry out, but it will take some time.

That's a good link, the drains problem is a big one on the Boxster. Both of my cars have had issues with clogged drains.
