Hi,
This is probably the sunroof seal itself, and are stupidly expensive.
Try this as a first shot -
Clean the seal with the roof open fully to remove any moss algae or dampness. Let it dry out properly.
Next, Use a silicone product for tyres to make them look glossy. This is formulated to help rubber retain it's flexibility - and is also an excellent moisture repellant.

You can close the roof while still wet with the stuff. It won't matter.

I did mine last winter when I had a wet drivers seat due to leaks.
No problems since.

If this works for you too, Please rate as Fixya so others may follow. Thanks.

There is no real solution to this problem apart from actually taking it to the renault garage and explaining to them what the problem is, from there onwards they will actually do a water test on your car it can actually be anything in between small adjustments on the windows of your car or resealing the roof glass.

'03 Accord-water leak at rear driver side floor board


I had a similar leak on a 1995 Accord. I traced the issue to the plastic liner behind the door panel. The seal was broken at the bottom and water would leak from that to the rubber weatherstrip at the bottom of the door that seals at the plastic threshold molding. You can't really see it good until the door panel is removed. The water would drip until it puddled up enough to run over the threshold molding and under the driver's seat. This caused the floorboard behind the driver's seat to be soaked after a rain. I have resealed the plastic lining but of course it hasn't rained since. I'm confident this will solve my problem and hopefully provide you a new place to look for yours.

Rain Sensor wipers Renault Megane


Either the replacement sensor the windscreen technician should have fitted isnt connected properly to the glass or it has developed an intermittant fault - quite common with Renaults especially megane scenics and grand scenics....

Renault Clio sport R Reg - leaking manual sunroof


word_answers.gif Betta Windsrceens Stockport have been repairing sunroofs for 30 years. What i will tell you is both the mk1 and mk2 clios have a problem with the sunroofs.
The sunroof needs to be taken out cleaned damming seal on frame removed and fitted back with silicone sealer excess sealer clean of with white sprite no need to remove head lineing if fitted with 10 mm bolts use a ratchet spanner. Mk1 clios also leak from the arial remove and reseal. And mk1 & mk2 have a problem with the bulk head filling up with water. Open bonnet on the back of the bulk head is a hose about 6 inches long which gets blocked un block and the water can drain like it did the day the car left the factory. bettabob

Renault megane scenic ( t-reg)


The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
