Waterlogged roof motor E88


Recommended Posts

Hiya 

 just question about the motor for the roof on E88. I managed to get to the PDC and Roof motor in the rear of my convertible only to find all under water 😔managed drain the water and seal were I think it’s coming in. I’ve ordered a new PDC but will I need to order a new motor for the roof as it’s stopped working and is absolutely soaking. Any help would be appreciated    
  Cheers

Hi Kev

Welcome to the Forum

First I would check that all the drain holes are clear if the water build up was as you describe something was stopping it running away. I go around mine a couple of times a year and use piece of small spring type curtain support for net curtains and rod them through it's surprising how clogged they get. 

For the motor have you tried drying it out thoroughly with a heat gun or hair drier then check the fuses and relays? 

If you need a motor check www.realoem.com to make sure you have the correct part number then search the Net and contact the specialist BMW Breakers (cheaper than BMW Dealers) 

Oh and Happy New Year

Hiya Dave

 Happy new year to you to.

Ye I knew water pooled their but not this bad. But we had 3 days of heavy rain and the battery kept dying over night. All seems well now though. It’s my first winter with car last owner kept it garaged all the time so would not of had this problem. I’m going to dry it out and check relays and fuses. If you don’t mind we’re are drain holes?

Hi Kev

On the Convertible I would think they are pretty much like my X5 there are 4 in the boot area look like a rubber bung in the floor with a tube attached. If you look on realoem you should find the locations. 

Good luck

Dave
