Re: Clio II sunroof leaking?

Take the sunroof out and reseal it, it's as quick as cleaning up the silicone you have squidged all over the roof of the car, besides if you seal the outside it looks awful.
1. remove the glass
2. remove the rubber/fabric trim in the sunroof apeture.
3. pull down headlining, remove 10mm bolts around perimeter of frame(about 22)
4.disconnect 2 sunroof drains both front corners of sunroof frame.
5.lift out frame
6.remove old rubber seal from underside of sunroof frame, degrease fram and roof contact points.
7.apply 3mm bead of tigerseal pu adhesive around the middle of the frame perimeter(where the old seal was).Dont be tempted to use a larger bead as it WILL squidge out over the roof).
8. check sunroof drain pipes are clear(should be able to blow down them freely)
9.refit in reverse order, allow car to stand 4 hours for sealer to cure.

We have done 100's, roof will never leak again and no messy silicone sealer in sight!!

Hope this helps
