They said that it will be condensation which is a very common problem, not covered by warranty and it should dry out within a couple of days.
Its now been a week and showing no signs of drying out.
Does anybody have any advise please.
I have just called renault again who have said that they will take a quick look at it if I can take it in a week on Saturday.
Has anybody else had this problem?
Have same problem, how did you resolve? Before I start pulling apart, as it does not go away when lights are in use.
Thanks Tony
