  1. Windshield leak - would there be permanent damage?

    X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    Hi all, I just had my windshield replaced about 3 weeks ago, and experienced first leak last weekend during heavy rain. The floor on the passenger seat side (front and rear) had puddles due to the leak. I did try to towel dry at least once a day, but the carpet remained somewhat damp for 2-3...
  2. Coolant Leak, need help!!

    F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So I have a coolant leak that started after I had replaced the oil filter housing gaskets; however, it does not appear to be coming from the coolant lines feeding into the oil cooler. I had to remove the fan and I was thinking a line may have gotten cracked when I was putting the fan back into...

    I have a e36 318i '95 manual. A month ago the car was running fine with no troubles besides needing a new alternator.

  4. Leak Near A-Pillar on my E93 328i Convertible

    Anyone have any thoughts on how to resolve this? Whenever it rains, especially heavy, I am getting leaks on this area. Always on the passenger side and a tiny bit on the driver side A-Pillar. I used a trombone snake to clear out the rubber channel that lines with the A-Pillar, I used Krytox...

  11. Water in the rear right floor board

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I had a '95 convertible that had the same problem. It was a clogged drain of some sort, but I had someone else fix it, so I really have no idea. But the passenger side, rear floorboard keeps filling up with water. It has rained a lot, so it may be getting in from somewhere, but on my '95 it...

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey everyone, I was doing an oil change on my 09 528i and I noticed this strange leak. It was behind the front under panel, under the engine near the front. I can't seem to find where it's coming from, this leak is just sort of "there". This bolt also appears to have worked itself loose...

    Hey guys and gals. My 2006 525xi is having an issue. For the last year or so, about 1500 miles after an oil change, I'll be greeted with a low oil warning (oil level below minimum). At first I was super freaked out and rushed to get more oil thinking something would break if I didn't but now it...
  18. Windwasher fluid dissapearing

    F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    If I fill it to the brim, it will be mostly full next morning, perhaps 1/8" lower. But take a short drive in town and half a quart is needed to refill. Windshield and headlights are sprayed rather enthusiastically, indicating both pumps are operational. Real OEM lists the whole bunch of parts...
