Default My Macan needs a plumber

There is a drain hole near the gas cap that seems to be clogged. When I wash the car, the gas cap area gets filled with water. Does anyone have any advice on how to unclog this drain?

Mine was clogged too. Scrubbed it with a dish brush and a blast of compressed air.
All clear.
Don't have compressed air. Canned Keyboard dusters often have a straw attachment.
Dollar store purchase, or amazon add on.
Hold onto that straw, you don't want it blowing itself off and clogging that drain worse...

NO... it's been pretty constant.

Weedeater string works sometimes for things like that. I think Porsche recommends compressed air at low pressure.

I have the same problem. I was hesitant to use the force of my air compressor. Air in a can sounds right.
