Leaks around windscreen pillars

I have a 2005 Clio dynamique with an irritating leak.
Whenever it rains I get wet patches on the edge of the roof lining were it joins the A pillar plastic trim.
(I think it's called the A pillar,the one either side of the windscreen).
It leaks on both sides.
The car has an electric sunroof so it's either leaking from there or from the windscreen at the sides.

Anyone had this and might be able to offer me a simple fix that doesn't involve removing headlining etc

Thank you

Re: Leaks around windscreen pillars

Sounds like the sun-roof drains may be blocked. Open the sun-roof and look into each front corner there should be drainholes.
They can normally be cleared by probing form above or from the oulet end.

If the drains are clear the seal between the sun-roof frame may be leaking - not an unknown problem.
