onthefence is on a distinguished road
Wet carpet. Removing rear door panel. Resealing vapor barrier.

Did this on my X3, thought I'd share it with X5 guys.

Noticed a wet carpet in the rear seat on the driver's side.
Opened up the door to inspect.

I verified the door drains were clear.

Used T30 to remove 3 bolts.
You must use extra long Torx bits.

Popped off door panel
3 clips to detach.

Resealed the hole with gutter flashing caulk
I keep a tube of this for resealing vapor barriers after window regulator repairs
GooGone helps clean up any mess.

Pics include the leaking area.
My bowden cable door handle got detached so I took a photo of how it goes back.

If anyone ever has questions on this repair, let me know.
