Re: 2001 clio 1.2 16v sunroof leak

If you have a leak that you think is coming from the sun roof or even if your Clio has a lot of drumming at low
revs or creaking from the sun roof take the glass out
then working from the rear of the sun roof were the
clamp is pull off the trim that goes round the sun roof
and helps hold the roof lining up off, you can then by
easing the roof lining down a little tighten with a 10 mm
spanner the nuts that hold the sun roof frame in, this
may cure the leak and will make the car more plesant
to drive less creaks and drumming, it's not much more
work to remove the frame and fit a new seal but I am
a lazy sod so am giving it a go before going to the new seal.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
