DIY: Rear Sunroof Drain Repair - E53
1 Attachment(s)
Here is my DIY on repairing a leak in the cargo area due to disconnected drain hoses in a 2001 X5 4.4i.

Since this is my 1st post, I should introduce myself.

I've been lurking here (and some other BMW forums) since the beginning of the month, when I bought a Pearl Beige Metallic 2001 X5 4.4i w/110k+ miles on it.

It is in very good condition, but being almost 12 years old (06/01 mfg) there are some things that need attention.
  • License Plate Lights (fixed thanks to this and other forums)
  • Tail Lights (fixed thanks to this and other forums)
  • Pixels shot on radio (sent to VDORepairs, thanks to this and other forums)
  • Fried Amp, due to this leak (now repaired!)
  • Minor Oil Leak (I hope - TBD - plan on having an Indy diagnose and repair)
  • Wear on some trim (not a big deal)
  • Fluid changes all around - preventive (plan on having Indy deal w/trans and brakes, will do everything else)
All of these forums have been a great resource, so I am returning the favor.

I could not find this DIY fix on any of the 3 forums that I now frequent. So I plan cross-posting this elsewhere, hope no one minds!
