Re: Scenic scuttle leak not covered under warranty
It is not so much a design fault but a poor maintenance problem and if the car has been serviced in accordance with both Renaults and the lease companies conditions I would suggest you appeal.
I have never seen checking the scuttle drains on any Renault service schedule nor on any other car makers service schedules. In my opinion the absence of any releated checks on the service schedule is very much down to the manufacturers. Although of no help to you Renault aren't the only cars to suffer from the problem as I have been dealing with such on various makes of cars since around 1984.
It may be worth consulting the terms and conditions (especially the small print) of any contract you have before going further.
