Water in tire well

Hi Folks. Just had a similar water problem after heavy rains from hurricane Sandy. I have an '04 530i. Water leaked into the trunk and fried the PWP power module; took out the radio and no heads up display. After two trips to the dealer they finally found all four sun roof drains clogged. They had to take off the rear tires for access to blow air up the drain hoses to clear them. The module and radio were replaced, roof liner cleaned and an ozone generator was used to partially eliminate the odor of burned plastic caused by the fried module. Only $3700 but covered under insurance as wind damage from hurricane Sandy. Lesson learned - keep the drains clear.
