Mine has not sheared off yet (2013), but is showing signs of fatigueCould someone please check their vehicle for me and tell me if the washer fluid hose is routed the same way on their car? This is a picture of the left side of the car with the frunk open. You can see the hose in the picture that has broken off. It comes up from behind the moulding near the hinge at an awkward angle and then goes into the slot in the black bracket at the top left of the image (which is attached to the hood). To me this looks like it was begging to break off with repeated openings of the frunk (which it did) despite the ribbed/flexible area shown.
I'd like to know if mine was installed incorrectly from the factory, or if this is just a poor design and I'll need to make modifications to it once Porsche fixes it. Thanks.

Hi AllMine is like that also. Long ago I noticed it and also thought it was only a matter of time that it would break, since it seems highly stressed when you open the hood. So far it hasn't broken, but I believe it will.
