My 1998 Scenic had water dripping from the interior light and I tracked this down to the aerial. Unfortunately, the roof panel is triple thickness here, so it's difficult to repair. I understand that the proper solution is to remove the interior light, remove the "waterproofing", and then remove the aerial by unscrewing the fixing inside, and remount with some silicon rubber to seal it. What I did was remove the "waterproofing" and then put some new plastic coated gaffer tape over to keep the water from getting into the lights. The water still got in at the aerial, but didn't get any further. This lasted for over a year before I scrapped the car.
