2005 Megane CC Leaking Roof

Hi all

My 2005 CC has sprung a leak!

The leak is from the point where the roof meets the front window/door stanchion. Anyone had similar?

There is a slight kink in the seal but this is down by the wing mirror and I didn't want to pull it out for fear of getting a leak but think I will have to give it a go.

Any advice regarding this would be gratefully received, thanks for reading!

Re: 2005 Megane CC Leaking Roof

We had that problem.

On a dry sunny day (LOL), I partially opened the roof and inspected the full width rubber seals. No splits or cuts, but the rubber felt dusty dry.

We liberally applied clear rubber lubricant, working and rubbing it in with our fingers on all the full width seals, and around the locking clamplevers and especially round the screen top corners where the seals overlap and look a bit bitty.

We had smeary side windows a few times afterwards, but the dripping in stopped straightaway and has remained so; and that must be 12 months ago.
