My mother bought a second hand BMW 116 about 2 weeks ago, when she got into it this morning there was about 2 inches of water in the rear driver side footwell. Now the boot, and roof is dry so I am suspecting a broken door seal. The car has a warranty for 6 months. The dealer she bout it from is closed for 2 weeks over Easter so we can't contact. Just wondering and looking for conformation that this problem should b fixed by them under warranty?
Beginning to smell a bit. What car dealer would sell a car in that condition. You would have thought that they would have done a full check on it before selling it. Shut for a Fortnight at easter.I would have thought that they would need all the trade that they could get without having to shut down. Maybe best to get someone to have a good look underneath to make sure it is not been in an accident and maybe has been ringed. Just my suspicious mind probably.
Is it a BMW dealer, donki? If not, the warranty might only cover the engine and gearbox which is normal in N.Ireland from secondhand car dealers. You are in NI aren't you (I don't know the situation in the rest of the UK)?
Your car will soon begin to smell a bit if you dont get it fixed. Dealers do not carry out a water ingress check on car that they are selling , why would they? Most probably problem was present when traded in but not mentioned. Could be faulty door seal, door membrane punctured or not fitted correctly. Door drains blocked or at worst a leak from faulty seam in the floor pan. You may be able to see where it is entering from if you remove the carpets and look for a thin brown stain line.
