Re: Help with leak on my Scenic

Hi madnoel10. I also found this on a site as well:

"Scenic sun roof leaks (often coming out of overhead light console, or flooding footwells) can be fixed with a toothbrush, hot warm soapy water and some silicon grease.

Open the sunroof. With the toothbrush and hot water, throughly clean the felt seal that runs round the sunroof glass. Wait until dry.

Apply liberal doses of silicon grease to the newly cleaned seal. Close sunroof.

Check sunroof lies perfectly flat with seal just proud of the roofline. (No more than 1 or 2mm above). Adjust if necessary using torx keys to loosen the 4 mounting bolts, one at a time, moving the roof up or down a fraction as necessary. Close and wait for rain..."

I just rang Renault, they said the cost for 2 felt seals is around 34! Yes we're talking about 2 small felt seals, one front and one back I am presuming. I think I'll be trying the fix posted above!
