Re: Megane II water leak

If the leaks are infact due to blocked scuttle drains you are in good company. It's a fairly common problem especially after the Autumn months and not just on Renaults I'm afraid. To clean the drains properly I suggest not only the top ends be checked but also the lower outlet end which terminate behind the front wheel arch liners.

Just had to clean the drains on my Honda and my mates Pug. Oh and my neighbours VW Golf flooded last week - same problem.

Tell your dealer this is a common problem in many makes of cars.
