Hi I dont know if any of you people have had problems with Water ingress into BMW e36 convertibles....
first of all last year i had a leak in the passengers corner fomr the seals -so i got a specialist to the job -he replaced all the seals ..... and still no joy -leaks still ... so i basically wasted 250 quid on selas going round the front and side rims of the hood i dint need...... I DID RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM BY SPRAYING THE HOOD WITH FABRICIL which you can get fomr HALFORDS FOR £3.
but now I have another problem.... I have alsways notcied a bit of water ingress into the boot -but now to my horror witht the bad rain recently i notice the boot is soaked and the passengers foot tray is wet....
again to my shock and horor this lunch time i removed the loveley leather seats to realsie they are soaked and about half a pint od water was resting under them -i imagine this water is sliping in from the boot -possibly and then running down the seat into drivers tray? -im not sure though -it could be from the hood storage section where it all comes from -i notice that gets full of water when it rains ?
I dont want to go back to this specialist and get another job done i dont need. Also is this water ingeress going to damage or rot my car?
Any ideas would be great!
To the chappy whos looking to buy a convertible look for these main things....
-NOISE FROM VANOS UNIT ? -NOSIY VANOS UNIT OR TIMR CHAIN?
-Spray hood for leaks -these can be expensive jsut to investigate -and its usually trial and eror costing you £ -I GOT A PROBLEM HERE MYSELF >>> HELP!!!
-WATER PUMP IS ANOTHER ISSUE
the engines are solid in bms and its a great car!
