I have a 2005 BMW 535I that has just started to get water in the passenger seating foot area. BMW serviced the car and said the drainage ports were clogged and cleaned them out. Now problem has returnd less than 2 weeks later. Any help would be appreciated.
Open the sun roof, look in the corners, normally front, you will see 2 holes.....hot water and strimmer twine (grass strimmer), feed down basically unblocking whilst pouring hot water down at the same time,up & down motion (like unbloking a sink/house drain) go gentle with the cable, you should see water coming out from under the car, there may also be drain holes at the rear on some models...

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
Same thing has been happening to my 2006 530i... my uneducated guess was that it had to do with the AC unit that wasn't leaking the precipitated water outside (like it should have done). But this clogged drainage ports scares me... more help on how to figure out if in deed it is the drainage ports... sorry I'm not very good with cars, but I hate BMW dealerships for their overpriced services! THANKS!
