water leak SOLVED

Passenger side (UK) floor mat getting water on it via wet glove box.

What could be the cause?

If you have the panorama roof it is likely a clogged drain from that.

According to this you have a drain on that type of roof as well. Right front. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=54_0262

So i fixed the leak. The rubber pipe came off of the sunroof drain above the headliner so i super glued it back on to prevent it coming off again in future

Just went through the same thing with my 02 with a normal sunroof.Both tubes were kinked in half part way down the A pillar.Looked like it was done intentionally.Tubes weren't in the holder and you would need to pull up 2 to 3 inched of tube from the pass through tubes in the dash to fold them in half.Not happy as my carpets are soaked now.
