Re: water leaking into car

More than likely the seal between the roof and sunroof frame. Renault don't really put enough there to last, it's just a thin strip. You'll need to get new sealant put on. If DIYing, cover sharp edges above the roof lining with some thick tape while working to avoid cutting tendons like I managed to, doing up the very last bolt when finishing off.

Could also be the aerial at the front. Take the light off from the inside to see if it's wet in there.
