7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Soaked carpet

My new to me 2002 745i has water coming from under the glove when it rains I read I need to remove the front wheels and wheel Wells to unclog the drains. It rained super hard last night and it's starting to mold the carpet really bad the smell is unbearable. I need any help I can get removing the carpet. I'm new to bimmerfest

Here's the fix. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=793781 As far as the wet carpet is concerned. Have somebody do a steam vacuum extraction that should suck out about 95% of the water. Then it should dry properly on its own. You may even want to place a small Electric space heater in the car overnight. Leave the windows down about an inch so the vapor can escape. My car here in Arizona has had interior temperatures to 160 and it has not melted anything inside. If you can get the car to 100 inside you'll have the carpet dry out pretty quickly.
