  1. I didn't realise the foam was so thick under the carpet! It has taken a while to driy out properly. Anyway should be sorted soon.
  2. Hi Folks Had my e39 for 13 years and I have had the usual water in the rear foot well problem twice. So she is leaking again, door cards are off and everything is drying out. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good product on the market I can used to stick the membrane back on. Thanks in advance folks Cheers
  3. So car is just about dried out now. The membrane is off from 1/2 along the bottom of the door and up one side. Should I just stick it back on or would you remove it altogether and do the full thing. I'm thinking remove, prep and stick it all back down.
  4. I will give this a try mate cheers. Fan heater on also.
  5. Carpets pulled up, this could take a week to dry out so I have plenty of time to prep!
  6. Cheers Dan, I never thought about a tape before. For that price I'm having it for a try. Thanks

    How Long Have You Owned Your E39?

    I have had my 2002 530 Touring for 13 years. She has 160.000 on the clock 100.000 are down to me. The NS wing needed replaced and the rear arches were showing rust. The Mrs thought it was time i changed to a newer car! Didn't happen new wing and all rust sorted out. I absolutely love this car! She looks as good as new now and I don't mean the Mrs!!

    My 530 manual Touring is on 160k. I have had her for 12 years. I did have to change a metal part that connects to the actual gears stick on top of the box. I can't remember what it was called now! Apart from that FSH and she has been brilliant.
