The lady complained there was a strange noise when she went round corners
I had a friend of a friend take a look (an AA windsreen repair man), he looked at all those areas took a few bits apart, checked for leaves, put it all back toegther, still leaks, so I imagine a seal or something needs replacing somewhere? I have booked it in to BMW, 95 just to tell me what needs fixing, not great, but needs must.
