Yes sir! That's exactly where it comes from ^^^^

I fixed my other halves sunroof the other month, Clio mk2 1.2 51 plate.

I used E shape, door draught excluder. It's been absolutely bone dry ever since, even in all the torrential rain we've had.

I wouldn't use silicone as it's so hard to get perfect to guarantee a seal. I also think the excluder offer better coverage. As it's essentially squashed to a pulp when you bolt the sunroof back in. Assuring a solid seal.

@ Thread starter: The draught excluder I used was from eBay , the same stuff that's used on the frame of your house front door. Simply remove ALL old rubber seal from circumference of sunroof, clean the WHOLE area with acetone and apply the adhesive excluder.

Refit sunroof and you should be sorted for a long time.

This is the stuff:

I cut it in half, down the middle.
