Re: Laguna 2 footwell leak solved


I had this problem in my Laguna MK2 but solved by cleaning the wholes in the sunroof...

I have used a cuted network cable to do it.

Re: Renault Laguna 2 - Water In Front Footwells*FIXED*


I had the sunroof drain problem too. I tried to shove something down the tube but it just got even more jammed.

I found a solution which worked well.

You can access the tube that connects to the holes in the front corners of the sunroof if you:

1) Take off the rubber seal around the top of the door (just a press fit).

2) Remove the handle in the roof of the car over the drivers / passengers head.

3) Remove the sun-visor.

4) Slightly pull away (towards the other side of the car, not downwards) the cover which is over the column between door and windscreen.

5) Get a little access under the roof lining to find the white rubber tube that carries drain water from the sunroof down the column to the floor outside the car.

6) Pulling that rubber tube off the drain hole (make sure you have mopped up the standing water!) and stick it over the nozzle of a foot-pump.

7) Blast any blockage out with ease

While you have the door seal off you can also remove the winscreen seal on that edge and make sure the drain hole is clear down there.

Cool Re: Renault Laguna 2 - Water In Front Footwells*FIXED*

Wife said WTF is all this water on my side, so I searched and did exactly as you said - last nights rain filled up my passanger side, so some drying out to do, when it stops raining here in Normandy France, while the wind is fine will assist the dryness.

Thanks for this post

You will need to repeat the process for the opposite front wheel.

Firstly you will need to jack the front of the car and remove the wheel.

Then proceed to remove the outer wheel arch lining nearest to the inside of the car, from memory i believe there is 1 torx screw at the bottom and 1 plastic nut about 10 inches up from the bottom.

Then you will need to be a bit forcefull to pull out the lining just enough that you can get your hand in.

There you will see a wjite hose about 8 inches up fom the sill with a black cap on the bottom with a lid on it this is what you will need to pull off but soon as you do this water will more than likely come shooting out, this cap isnt needed as the lid on it only serves to allow debris and mud to build up on it and track back up the hose and overflow over front lining of the sunroof and then the water runs down the inner trim of the windscreen and come out by your feet, not a good design if you ask me and potentially bad for the electrics.

While your there you could remove the foam pad in the sill under the pipe and rmove any mud and debris then relpace the foam.

If water doesnt come out of the hose when you remove the cap you will need to open the sunroof and in the front corners of the sunroof lining there is a whole in each corner you will need to gently push something down the hole to remove the blockage, one of the best things is the elastic curtain cords you get with the hook removed, however i didnt have one so i used an old tv coax cable with the end snipped off only cost a pound and pushing this down will remove the debris, then you can replace the lining and wheel exluding the cap and hay presto the blocakage is clear and the water will not come in again.

Re: Renault Laguna 2 - Water In Front Footwells*FIXED*

I'm still trying to find the leaks in mine - any of the fixes that doesn't require lifting up carpets or taking door panels off has been done and all worked but it seems to keep finding new ways of being wet! I loathe to take it to Renault.

It's been damp for a while now and I am concerned that the condensation is damaging the electrics, the sunroof opened on it's own the other day - how, in this weather can it be dried out completely? All suggestions gratefully received!
