The only other problem I've had is with a rattly sunroof. I've read somewhere that it is due to a worn pad up there. Has anyone got any DIY advice on fixing that problem?

Thanks in advance!

There are several screws on the under side of the unit I think. My clip broke a year ago. Renault want to sell the whole unit for 90 or so!! I have removed the clip and keep mine shut by wedging the drawer with an envelope (from a Tax demand I think!). I shall get it sorted one day. The clips are a well known problem with the sliding drawers!
