Hi, I'm new to this forum and understand how valuable some of the information supplied by fellow owners can be. One evening the alarm started to sound on the vehicle which I could not turn off using the remote. It was raining quite heavily and had been for some time so I thought it may have been over sensitive. I checked the vehicle to investigate further and noticed that the footwell in the driver side was soaking wet. I had had the wet footwell problem previously and thought it may have been due to clogged pipe or build up leaves/debri just under the filter, however this was not the case. As I got into the vehicle I tried to drive, but the car thought that the driver side door was still open and would not let me move more than a few feet before stopping automatically, clearly there was an electrical fault due to the leak. I had the vehicle towed to a BMW specialist, I had to have all the rubber seals replaced and electrical wiring fixed. The water was leaking through the front windscreen as the seals had started to leak, to my knowledge the windscreen was still the original so I have no idea how it had started to leak. Just for reference if you do experience wet footwells it can be due to the rubber seals to the windscreen.
