Question about 2003 BMW 5 Series
2003 X5 with about 42,000 miles. I've noticed when it rains, I sometimes get water on the passenger side floor. I've read that it could be the drain from the sunroof. What do you think? Is that a fix a non professional could handle? If so, how?
IF you are leaking from the sunroof in the front passenger side, you can remove the A-pillar cover next to the windshield (right side from inside of car) with a hex wretch, which is under the little plastic cover) and make sure the tube connecting the sunroof rain drain on top is not kinked or broken or not connected. Simply pour some water slowly down the drain on top with the sunroof open to test it. My was "somehow"kinked and I was able to fix it. There is also a NHTSA service bulletin #SI-B51-30-08 for 2003 BMW X5. If the tubing is not the problem, I would call BMW dealer and see if they fix the problem because of the "recall". Good Luck!

It's doubtful...my guess is your evaporator drain for the A/C system is plugged. This can be time consuming $$$ fix and usually a REALLY good mechanic can save you a couple bucks over the dealers.
