  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello, I have a 2013 BMW 528i(F10) and recently my driver side headlight went out because of water damage. Because the whole headlight house was damaged and full of water, I needed to replace the entire headlight-housing unit. I bought a Hella headlight-housing unit online. The housing unit does...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Everyone, I have been using this forum quite a bit for help with my cars, so I felt that it would be good to share my recent experience in the hopes that it might help someone else down the road! This will probably be lengthy, but I took a lot of pictures along the way and want to get it...
  3. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all, for other victims of this flabbergasting oversight, here's how I've made clearing the water drainage channels as easy as blowing up a balloon and drinking a beer which I'm guessing from reading all the posts on this, we all need ;-) Only had this car a week and already broken down 3...
  4. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hey all, Apologies in advance if in wrong section & if already posted I am hoping someone can assist me with this issue. Got into car yesterday and I noticed that the time on the top right not showing comes up as "--:--" on the normal iDrive screen, a few seconds later I went onto the CarPlay...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi there, In summary, test driving a '09 328i when it started raining near torrentially, which seemed fine as I slowed down for traction concerns with near an inch of water everywhere on road. All of a sudden, same throttle cruising in 6th at about 2100 rpm, the engine starts running horribly...

    Hi all, I have a 2011 535i with Bi-xenon adaptive headlights. Driver's side (LH) turn signal, adaptive light motor, angel eyes not operative. I had water damage from a leak. Surprise, right? First, I replaced the TMS ballast. The old one had visible water damage. No dice. Distance teach in of...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hello, I recently purchased a 1997 bmw z3, I'm fairly new to the forum but I know a thing or two about bmw. I took apart center console initially to remove the hand brake for a replacement, and when I did I noticed water underneath both the driver side and passenger side carpets but only on the...
  8. 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...

    I have recently bought a 2.5i X3. its been a great car for the few months I've had it but I have recently been in an awful lockout. Im in southern California so it typically doesn't rain much or at all but recently we have had heavy rainfall. there is a leak somewhere in the trunk/boot area and...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I'm starting to think this is something of a long shot, but here I am still trying. Anyways, this beauty is languishing in storage due to the dreaded sunroof drain-plugging that results in frying all 10 of the computer modules shown below: I've tried other avenues to not...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    EDIT: this is a long story - so here's the summary of my questions in case you don't want to read the whole story: After weeks of rain, I found battery box full of water. I had the local independent replace my battery a couple years ago - I notice that they didn't connect the overflow tube to...

  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    2011 xi Touring wagon with Navigation package. Yes it happened to me although possibly with a happy ending. And a DIY fix that might help others. Got in my car today and realized the pano sun roof was open all night! Could have killed myself. Yes big rain too... very not good Daddy. There was...

    I replace my module with this (L04257 1997-2003 BMW 5 7 Series Low General Body Control Relay BCM GMIII OEM) and it seams all my windows and doorlocks work now but the back hatch will not work. Deos the car need reprogrammed or do you think the module is out of a 528 sedan and not a wagon...
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)

  16. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I just purchased my 2016 435i in February and am already having issues with it. I took it though one of those laser touch less carwashes and the trunk must have opened during it somehow. It was then filled with water and the tow hook cover was off (which made me notice the water). The light...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey all. Like many of you, I've had issues with my vapor barriers before. I thought I'd fixed them with some new sealant 2.5 years ago, but after an insanely heavy downpour last night the problem has returned. One thing I noticed regarding the vapor barriers while replacing the sealant was that...
  18. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I bought a 2011 X5 xDrive35i Premium in early August of this year from a national pre-owned car chain. The AutoCheck report said that it had suffered from an accident in July of 2011, but didn't say anything about flood damage or a branded title due to flood damage. It only had 34K miles, and...
  19. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hiya guys So today after pulling my hair out over my beloved X5 I had a guy turn up to look at my key as that was the fault coming up as to why it wouldn't start. He looked at the key and wrote a temporary chip to see if the car would start before cutting a new key for me, the car turned...
  20. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey, So I have a 02' BMW 330xi and I left the windows open during a pretty heavy rain storm. The next day I started the car n something seemed wrong. The headlights are always on and I cannot turn them off. The light control switches stopped working on me. The fog lights will not turn on...
