Exclamation Laguna II Water Leak

Last week I discovered that the rear driver’s side seatbelt was soaking wet, so I let it dry out by attaching it to the other side of the car for a couple of days. After the last downpour of rain it got wet again. Anyway after a good afternoon in the freezing cold pulling the rear of the interior and door seals apart spraying water to find the leak. At first i suspected the rear door seal and after removing it, I could not see how water got into the rear. It came clear that there is a hole in a welding join just behind the boot lid. When I go the hose on this, water came flooding in where the seatbelt tentioner and airbag electrics are located. This looks like a production fault. So now all I have to do is use a good sealant to block the hole up. I’m sure soon enough, I would have a very damp and flooded Laguna. So for all those people with damp Renault's, Check for holes near welding joins. I wonder if the dealers would have spotted this. "Yep, your seals need replacing and this is how much it will cost you"
