I Had this. The rubber gaskets for the door clips wear out. Put some tacky grease where the clips go in to the metal.

I've ordered new clip from bmw with the new washers etc on them. I'll be putting them on over the weekend. Do you mean just dabbing some grease over the holes in the door where the clips go?

I actually find this entire process pretty tedious and have found that BMW's in general aren't immune to it.

Is it silicone grease you are referring to?

Marine grease would be ideal; stuff that resists being washed away.

Had this problem too with wet passenger floor, for me it was the moisture cover that was resembled faulty after repair of a broken window. I could use the old sealing when correcting it.

Yeah, they seem to be so notorious for failure.
