I have duct tapes round the top and its working, we just look silly. Please where should I start?
I sympathise with you. I first discovered water under the boot carpet and in the spare wheel well when I got a puncture when my 2000 Scenic was 18 months old. I traced the leak to a drip, drip, drip off the rear end of the nearside sunroof roof track. After removing the nearside plastic trim in the boot I discovered the drain pipe in corner appeared to be have been squashed by the trim. I put it all back carefully, so I thought, but it still leaked afterwards.

My rear sunroof has been taped up with black electrical tape for about 9 years now. I renew the tape every 12 months or so. At least the boot has remained dry for those 9 years. One day I may remove the trim again and try to protect the pipe from squashing better. My next car won't have a sunroof!!
