Re: Renault Scenic 1 - General Advice On Interior Water Ingress

Interesting post Wyn.

I also have a 2000 Scenic and have had exactly the same problem you mention with the nearside rear sunroof drain from new.

I didn't discover the problem until the car was 18 months old when I found the spare wheel well half full of water.

I stripped the boot linings out and found the drain pipe was kinked by being trapped. I attended to that but it didn't fix the problem. As I never open the rear sunroof I ended up putting black tape over the sunroof edges and haven't had any trouble since, other then renewing the tape every 12 months or so.
