Is there any known problem/fault with the BT50 (2013) utility getting water in the fuel tank


check the seal at the sender /pipe pick up at the top of the tank
it is a small depression and any water sitting there will leak in
change where you are getting your fuel as water is used to clean out the tankers delivering the fuel and it is possible that contamination is being picked up from the under ground tanks
if it is a diesel, water forms from condensation when the hot diesel fuel is returned to a cold tank
if it is a diesel then to cut down on the moisture , keep the fuel tank as full as possible
use a water separator in the fuel line and use diesel conditioner additive in the tank to prevent a fungus that grows in that environment
for further information discuss the problem with an accredited diesel specialist shop --the best type of water separator and conditioner to use

Air separator on pump is dripping is separator bad


probably not
it's purpose is to separate water from the air before that water gets to the components using the air
water in the air ( humidity, moisture or water vapor) is everywhere and air under compression releases that moisture as water which is collected by the separator for removal either by an auto drain valve or drain tap

Drain water separator light on, will not start


for water to drain out there has to be a means for the fuel to be replaced. most probably the fuel didn't flow in as the water ran out so air got in as the water was coming out. That means that you will have to bleed the air out of the fuel system the same as if you changed a filter.

Water leaking unto front floor carpet when driving through rain


Check around the edges of the windshield for any place water could be forced into the car. Especially if the windshield has been replaced. Check around the cowl that covers your windshield wiper motor. Remove the cowl if possible to check for rust holes or separated seams in the metal. The blower motor intake for the cars HVAC (heater) is often under this cowl. Make sure water isn't getting in through there. If you find a leak around the windshield or a separated seam, some windshield urathane or clear bathroom caulking would work. If you find a rust hole in a non visible place affix a tin or metal patch over it using rivets or your choice of fastener. Welding is the best method. Then cover the patch with short strand fiberglass bondo or something else to seal out water. If you have a hole in the floor you could put a patch on it with rivets or weld, then tar the underside well and put rocker panel coating on the top.

I have a peugeot 4007 and it is coming up on the electronic display remove water in separator? what does that mean and is it safe to drive?


It means your fuel system has a water trap to separate the water from the fuel. It is getting full of water and needs to be drained before it begins to let water back into the fuel system. If that happens, your engine will run very badly.
