Common issue on the Scenic..

The problem is that the Scuttle panel water seal is not tall enough to stop water running off the scuttle and into the spark plug holes.

The Official Dealer solution is to add a length of foam sealant (similar to draught proofing stuff) along the back underside of the Bonnet where it meets the origional seal. This will stop the water ingress..
