Hey guys, My uk model 520i e34 is letting in water, Snow was all over the car today and i seen water dripping from underneath the glovebox so i removed the glovebox to try and establish the cause but i couldn't establish the cause of the water coming in, so i hope that someone could tell me the cause of this and how to fix it before it gets out of control, thanks guys

someone else on this forum had the exact same problem, but i can't remember who it was:dunno:

i think they used the cabin air filter removal procedure to remove the glove box and check for leaks that way

problably an old rubber seal became brittle over time and cracked or something like that

sorry i couldn't be more helpful
