03 Clio Sunroof Leak - Problem found, dont know how to fix....
My partner drives an 03 Clio with a factory fitted sunroof. Over the past few months this has developed a leak, which is driving us both up the wall. Up to now I thought it was a bad seal under the plastic rim of the sunroof, which I sealed (twice) with Tek7 black silicone. This initially appeared to stop the leak, however its come back (be-it not as bad).
The leak always appears on the passenger side just at the top of the sunvizer when its up. Today I poured water into the drain at this side, for which the water runs right through, however it also runs into the car (via passenger sun viser). I also did the same thing at the drivers side, which the water runs right through, however none comes through to the inside of the car.
Based on this I assume that on the passenger drain, there is a leak (or the area around the drain).
My question (be-it longwinded), is has anyone seen this before? I am not entirely sure how to fix it. I could silicone around the visible area and leave the hole free, however fear that the problem may be inside the drain. This area is also quite hard to get at, so not sure how to solve it.
If anyone could offer some advise / guidance it would be greatly appreciated.
