Hi i hav a bmw compact 1995 an hav a water leak coming from th bulkhead when its raining heavy. it drips down behind th carpet. looks like it comes through all rubber grommets. can any1 help please
I have a '96 328is... Same problem. I have isolated it to the heaterbox area with a hose spraying thru the cowl grating. Water flows down the bulkhead puddles in the drivers' footwell. The drain is working, only seems to happen in very heavy downpours.

Probably leaking around the windshield then running down the pillar garnish and under the edge of the carpet then showing up in the center of the carpet when it accumilates enough to soak up through the carpet.
if this is a new shape meriva the problem is the wiper scuttle seal leaking water .it drips into the engine bay,onto the heater pipes and tracs into the cabin.Pour water onto the screen and look into the engine bay,just behind the engine and you will see it drip onto the heater pipes where they enter the bulkhead.It then tracs into the cabin and soaks the carpet.The problem is a foam seal on the scuttle panel when it should be a rubber one.One fix is to ensure that the seal where the heater pipes enter via the engine bay is dry and spray it and the pipes with underseal.Vauxhall are aware but dont have a solution?
Drill a 3/8 th hole through the floor at the lowest point then look for the water leak ,is the AC drain pipe clear as this is the most obvious point of entry and the AC condensate will run into car if this pipe is blocked
check the bulkhead area under the wipers. the scuttle panel has a drain hole & tube that ducts rain water away but can become blocked by dirt and leaves etc, then the water builds up and flows backwards over the edge and down the back of the dashboard via the bulkhead joints. A knitting needle or welding rod can be used to poke the hole clear then test by pouring a small amount of water through the grille beside the wipers and ensure it runs away and does not sit.
Also check your coolant level, if it is down then the leak may be from the heater matrix inside the car, this is more difficult to fix and needs the dashboard removed in a lot of cars.
The 3rd possibility is a leaking windscreen surround. Silicone would fix that, get the black stuff and put a thin bead around the outer edge of the windscreen rubber and smooth neatly with a wet finger or cloth.
Need to remove right front interior trim and carpet,then take water hose from outside and work from bottom up to issolate are of leak.once basic area is located can remove parts necessary to gain aces to install seam sealer.Then let dry for a few hours.After that water test again before assembly.
might be water inside the car leaked in slowly from the soft top in heavy rain, does the car smell slighly inside when all windows are closed? take the seats out and remove the water under the carpets, then leave everything to dry by slightly opening the windows for moisture to escape, try parking the car in the sun..........
