Laguna 1 - 2000 Not IR key

Hello all,

I've just got a 2000 Laguna 1 Sport 1.8. Happy with that car, however, I did get it in a rush..... had a car written-off just days before the family camping holiday!

I have read all the threads about the IR keys and central locking not working in the wet, I have a similar problem, however, I have the "improved" radio keys.

Everything works fine in the sun , stops when it rains... I think someone has already modified the immobilizer as I can unlock the drivers door with the key and the car still starts (phew!)

So, can anyone tell me where the radio receiver is? Is it under one of the brittle looking plastic covers by the front courtesy lights?

Does the wireless receiver still suffer the same problems as the IR receiver when it rains and the sunroof leaks?

Would I not see some water ingress on the roof lining?

Any advice would be most welcome.
