    I've had a good search of the forum and managed to find some very useful pointers but I've been unable to accurately diagnose my problem. The rear passenger foot-well is close to floating away!

    Hi guys Car is 2005 E90 320D saloon. No sunroof! Originally I thought that water in this footwell had been from one night where it rained and the door wasn't perfectly shut but it's not the case as it'd dragged on now despite that I've dried it really well with a dehumidifier several times...

    I'm not sure how to find out for sure if I have a leak or not but the rear passenger footwell in my 320D is wet repeatedly and it's driving me mad, worrying that if I don't get it sorted quickly that I'll end up with the car smelling musty, or worse.
