I wondered if any E39 owners have encountered water in the right rear passenger foot well. On really rainy days, the foot well gets wet inside the car. I suppose a sunroof drain could be the culprit, but I am new to this body style and I am looking for advice. Thanks!

I followed the DIY and resealed both rear vapor barriers several months ago. The problem has not returned. I did not even pull the entire panel...just backed out the door handle screw, undid the screws behind the wood trim and popped the clips along the side and bottom. Reached behind the panel, applied silicone sealant and put everything back together. Dealer wanted $400 for a fix. This one is easy - unless you have a rear side air bag........
