can anyone help I have noticed that my 2000 clio is leaking water at the top of driver side windscreen just below fixing for sun visor. I have noticed that there is small gap at outside rubber seal on passenger side. Is there a temp way to fix seal and also will it be wile expensive to replace seal.

Re: windscreen seal broke

I would be tempted to fill the gap & run a line of silicone sealent along the seal.

If you are careful, it should not be obvious, but even if it is, it is preferable to repairing the chaos which will ensue if water hits the electrics.

I don't know how expensive/difficult it is to replace the seal, perhaps another member can advise on that?



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Re: windscreen seal broke

evil coup here..
Do u have windscreen insurance?
If its damaged ,cracked or perhaps at 11 years old the surface has become scratched.
My policy has free windscreen replacement,something like 3 claims in 2 years or is it 2 in 3 years , I forget.

My old car had a small crack in the glass for well over a year , I never bothered getting the screen replaced and I would never take the oh weel do a cheapo inject some resin n u wont see it method.
For something like that it would be handy as if the windscreen leaked afterward it would be autoglass/whoever's problem..

I tried the method Vel suggested some years ago on another car it wasnt very successfull.I probably just didnt do it very well.
I think the rubber had just perished, is that whats happened to yours?

Re: windscreen seal broke

Hi, Im new to the club, Have just aquired a 2001 clio authentique for my daughter and currently sorting a few niggles i have with it !
I too have noticed a piece of outer windscreen seal missing from the top passenger side corner ! it looks like a "L" shaped piece that clips into the seal to block up the corner ! as i think the seal is in three separate pieces,
Does anyone know where to get these parts ? i've tried flea bay to no avail, Nige..
