Talking Re: Renault Scenic - Interiors - Leaking Sunroof on 1999 Scenic

I had the same problem with my scenic 1998 DTi Double sunroof. Occasionally when it rains water was coming in from centre console in the ceiling. It was drain blockage. In order to clean it you have to remove the sunroof. 1998 model is very simple, you need alan key to unscrew one bolt on each side. Then you have to turn sunroof handle as if you are opening it and snap the lever out from the socket. The sunroof will come off. The pipe is located on each front corner. I used a metal wire to open it. Dont be afraid to use it as the pipe used is very thick (on 1998 model). The pipe then stops just behind the front wheel inner mudguard, at the very bottom. You will need to unsnap the mudguard and remove the screw in order to see the pipe. Then flush plenty of warm water with some drain cleaner (Make sure its diluted). After I used pressure air to clear as much as possible. That solved the problem.
