    Leak in Left Side Passenger Footwell

    I do not know if this has been discussed before.

    SoCal had a deluge this past week and the E39 was left out in the rain by my daughters place.
    My wife's 530i has a big leak somewhere in left passengers side. I did not know about it until I found all the wet towels.
    The foot mat is now being dried out. It is still damp in the footwell. The rubber in the door sill emblem deteriorated.
    Evidently water has been leaking before and in contact with the door sill.

    Would anybody have encountered this problem before? Where was the leak and what was the solution?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Common problem.
    Either the vapor barrier behind the door card (panel) is loose at the bottom or the sunroof drain line that runs down th A pillar is leaking.
    Just a few mods.
    If it ain't broken make it better and quicker!
