Remove the protective plastic located on top the distributor by unclipping it. Then use a 10mm wrench to remove the bolts helding the distributor cap. Remove the wires and cap together.
Some rotors have a small retaining bolt on one side. Once you have undone bolts and retaining clip if present, all you have to do is slide it and pull it out.

That's a lot. I would get a second opinion. When the same thing happened to me, the water caused my ignition coil to crack, and not send spark to the plugs. $50, though it took a long time to diagnose.

Enough water to lock an engine and damage it sounds pretty unlikely. Does it turn over? I would pull the plugs and give the starter a spin. If water fountains out the plug holes, it's just possible major damage was done. If no water, I'd be seeing another mechanic.

The main hood release in on the driver's kick panel. Pull it toward you. This pops the hood open. There is a secondary release in the center of the- hood just UNDER the hood.

It is not normal on any car.
A week is too long for a major current drain, so it has to be something small. A small courtesy light bulb in a storage compartment that is failing to turn off?
Have you added any audio accessories? (amps, DVD players, etc) Sometimes aftermarket accessories have nasty drains and have to be unplugged when the car will be parked for an extended period (months) but if one is draining your battery in a week, it is defective.
The last suspect is computers. This car has multiple computers on it that are supposed to go into sleep mode a few minutes after you shut off the car. Perhaps one of them is not going to sleep? That would not be as tough to diagnose as you might think. You put an ammeter in line with the battery and watch the current flow. It will be high at first, and then drop off after 5 minutes or so. If it is more than 50 mA or so, it is too much, so you start pulling fuses and disconnecting things until the current drain drops down below 50 mA.
On a 2010 X6, you are probably going to have to reprogram a lot of stuff after disconnecting the battery to diagnose this problem.
