Melted wheel well housing

Anyone have come across this issue?
Also the blue hose started bubbling up too.

Affecting both right and left rear, or just passenger rear? This is a first for me

Would expect more heat from the front brakes than rear......? Any exhaust components near there?

There's a pretty significant liner bump-out passenger rear to accommodate those fuel system components. As detailed here by Apex https://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1182475

So I would suspect good old radiant barrel heat as the likely cause. Crazy.

Suggest you send repair bill to:
