Hi, I know there have been a few post on water leaks, yet I'm still having trouble identifying the source of mine. I thought I had found and fixed the leaks as my car was all dry after a long period of rain. However as I took of water dripped and drippled down from between the glove box and the door. It's not wet up in there but seems to drip down and puddle in the front passenger footwell. The front sunroof drain works fine, and I've had a hose all over the car for 1/2 an hour or so and no water got in. Any help would be great.<p>Mike 1980, 732i

If these drains are plugged then water will build up in the cowl area and leak into the passenger compartment. The only way I know to clear these drains is to remove the cowl cover and then flush the drains out using a hose. <br>
