  1. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello everyone, Recently my spare jug of washer fluid sprung a leak and spilled in the upper section of the trunk. I removed all of the coverings and dried everything out. One night last week the OnStar call service notified dispatch of a problem and apparently they thought I was unresponsive...
  2. F06 Gran Coupe (2013 - 2018)
    Any ideas why the area under the rear seat would retain water? :mad: The rear window does not look like it is leaking in an obvious way. The rear Door seals were dry. The rear Passenger Rt foot well is wet also. Could the rear seat Wick that much water from the floor? :dunno:

    Greetings:) I have an accident that spilled about 3 gallons of water in my trunk last week. I tried to make it dry as much as I could by pumping the water out of the compartment where the electronics are and use tons of paper for absorbing. but never blew with dryer. Here are the issues: -The...

    I have a 1994 325i (E36) 4-door. When it rains, I get a LOT of water into the passenger's side floor. Enough to form a small puddle. Happens even if the car is parked (motionless). No obvious issue seen around the door perimeter with the seal. Has happened repeatedly, with every rain. I...
  5. 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...

    Hey guys, i've recently bought a 2005 320d E46 touring and I have a problem with water temp. First of all, the water temp needle on speedometer hardly ever reached 12 o'clock and on highways the needle dropped to about 1/4. I've changed the engine thermostat and now the needle is almost at 12...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    It was raining quite heavily today. When I got into my 2011 335d, water was pouring out from under the dashboard onto the passenger side floor, from glove box area. Any ideas where water might be getting in? I checked under the hood and the drainage grilles near the windshield on each side were...

  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Yesterday I noticed a lot of water in the battery compartment and when I pulled out the side panels I noticed water on the left side where the amplifier is. After a lot of looking, I pulled down the headliner and saw where the drain hose connects to the sunroof drain. I pulled off the hose and...

  12. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    After a long road trip in hot weather, I noticed the floorboards on the driver and passenger side of my 2013 X3 were soaked. Google searches suggest that the AC drain (?) is clogged. If so, how do I unclog it?

    So, last night I was at a baseball game for my son and a freak rainstorm came through. Unfortunately, I left my 2017 F34 330i GT at home and took my other car that is better suited for baseball equipment and left the sunroof open. I came home after the game which was ultimately called because...

    I have a 2000 540i that I just recently fixed the vapor barriers on but now as I excellerate water leaks out from the bottom sides of the center console into the back seats. Also it leaks out of the front park of the car into the floors of the driver and passenger seats. I'm not sure if this is...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey, I drive a 2000 540i with 124,000 miles on it. Ever since I bought the car about 6 months ago it hasn't blown cold air. That has never been an issue because I live in Florida and it rarely gets cold enough to use the heat. But recently whenever I accelerate water leaks from the bottom of...

    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...

  19. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hi, I am experiencing water on the rear passenger floor boards when accelerating. I had read through some previous posts and discovered that my passenger side sunroof drain was blocked. After following some do it yourself posts, I managed to clear the blocked drain with a bicycle pump and a...
  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi guys Please help! Every time it pours rain, or is at least constant rain for a day, my front and rear foot wells are drenched with water. It only happens on the left hand side of the vehicle when it is parked, leaning that side downhill. It has a pano sunroof. Could this be from the drain...
