Default Wet 745 carpet

We have had almost 7" of rain the past three days here.. My 1990 745 parks in my driveway at about a 15-18% incline, nose up. The rear footwell on the left side literally has water standing. The rest of the footwells are just wet. Car has sunroof but I really don't think thats the culprit. Anyplace I need to look to stop this? Thx..

Windshield is probably leaking.

My guess is the plastic block-off plate in the driver’s side footwell. It’s hidden behind the left side kick panel and is a black plastic ~5” square with rounded corners. The seals go bad over time and allow water running down the inner fender/lower A pillar area to enter the cabin. Dry the area thoroughly and seal around the plate with a silicone adhesive sealant to solve the problem.

Probably leak as the others have said. Just to be safe check your coolant level before you drive.

Sunroof?

That much water is a pretty classic indication that your sunroof drain(s) are clogged.

Ask me how I know...

When it rains heavy, water does get through the sunroof but you have a leak elsewhere.

Check the corners of the firewall under the hood. I've seen rust holes and leakage to the floor happen from there.
