The next day during a heavy shower of rain I noticed a small trickle of water coming in through the interior lights.

It never did do that again though so I thought nothing more of it - but now that it's started to fill the rear compartments I'm beginning to wonder. Maybe yours is the same? Either that or like other poeple think it could be the sunroof drain pipe.

Let me know if you get yours sorted- might help me fix mine!
I have to replace the UPC computer and harness due to corrosion !
The UPC is under the bonnet inside the fuse box and the harness jack underneath the passenger seat
The harness jack cannot be replaced , a complete harness is required !
The technician will try to bypass the jack by cutting and soldering the wires
Problem is that a wire in and out differs in color
Techi says it is a common problem - should then be Renault's cost ?
Cost ZAR 6500 UPC and harness ZAR 24000
Never again a Renault
