'03 325i premium pkg. sunroof. We're getting water on the driver's side floor in the front and the back. Any ideas where/why it's getting in? The trim piece above the windows on both sides of the car has a small gap, as if the piece has shrunk. I'm guessing this is not the source. Thanks for any help. It goes to the dealer under warranty on Thursday...
IF the window regulators have been replaced on that side then often times the vapor barrier (large gray foam looking barrier that seals the inside of the door) will either get torn or possibly just not re-installed correctly. Also sometimes they can just leak on their own. The only way to tell is to remove the door panel and inspect the vapor barrier for leaks. This is one of the most common e46 water leaks.
