Megane Cabrio Water Leak!!


I just thought i would share a problem i have sorted, sorry if it's in the wrong section!

I noticed after the heavy rain the rear seats were soaking wet yet the roof and windows didn't leak in.

I found that the leak in was caused by a blocked drain tube. To locate it you need to partially open the roof and allow the rear section to open up so it is facing upright 90 degrees.

On the inside front corners you will see a small back box attached with 2 10mm nuts.
You will notice there is a black rubber pipe fixed to the bottom of the black box. Carefully wiggle free the rubber tube and then you can simply blow through the tube to unblock it.
After that reconnect the tube and flush through with some clean water just make sure there are no more leaks!

Hope this helps as it took me ages to find where the water was coming in from and found very annoying!
