Exactly! I took it 150 miles to get to these guys!Always best to take it somewhere you can trust. I don’t trust the local dealer so a 20 mile drive means I take it somewhere where the tech who works on it used to work for me and where I work they own 55 dealers in the UK so I also get staff rates for the Touring as well.

I had bought a used 2006 530xi with 176,000 miles for what i thought was a steal.Nightmare!
This is after I dried up inches of water in the battery compartment. The car could have caught fire! Disconnected battery and moved the polystyrene module holder to find more standing water. In the second photo you can see the little tray is full of water and whatever that module is that I removed, it's suffering from corrosion from water damage!
To make matters even worse, I closed the boot after I removed the battery (IDIOT) and so I had to use jump leads and another car to get power to the tailgate to open it.
I've cleaned the whole area. Now to find the culprit. Will start with the drain hoses. I had a go at pulling them out but they wouldn't budge. Will give it a but more muscle next time to try to get the end grommets to pop off.
Can anyone link me a DIY of how to drop the headliner to access the hoses?
