Originally posted by chromius_e30 Is there anyway to tell if there are holes without pulling up the carpet...in other words, could you guys see these holes from underneath? Cuz on mine there is absolutly no rust under the car.... I am afraid to pull up the carpet now...
yes, you can. (see arrow in the picture) if you see rust spots from outside or a hole going into your interior, try to use a screw driver and poke it. if it goes thru and you feel a cushion / sponge from behind the dead pedal, then there's a hole. make sure you check the other side too !

Cool thanks...I'll have to check that out this weekend. I'm all scared now...
finally i got the hole patched on the passenger side today. i'm telling you taking out that base carpet is just ............. PITA !!!! adriano and al would say "S L U T !!!!!!"
anyways, the gas pedal that i heard was really hard to take it off, came out wasn't that bad. there are 3 clips, covered by the carpet (take the carpet up first) and i ended up made a bigger hole on the carpet around the gas pedal area .
that was the hardest part, taking out the carpet on the driver side, due to all the pedals and lack of room.
Sorry I didn't notice the replies until now... there's 4 drains for the sunroof... 2 front and 2 rear... they drain around the rockers just behind the front wheel wells and just in front of the rear wheels.
At each of the 4 rocker ends you'll see 2 openings - use a coat hangar to make sure these are clear. After you do this, open your sunroof and use compressed air to clear these passages from the 4 sunroof drain holes.
Before you put the carpet back in try flowing some water down each drain hole to make sure it doesn't back up anywhere.
Hi, for the trunk, check the taillight gaskets. In my E30 I had a small leak and I traced it to them (water was running down the trunk gutters right on to where the light gaskets were, and then in behind the lights). Once the gaskets were refurbished, it was dry as a bone in there.
i finally found where's the water coming in from, it's from behind the heater i dont know how the hell the water can come in from there ? i'm thinking to take the blower motor out on the weekend, see if there's a leak thru the firewall in there
