Leaky sunroofs seem to be a trade mark on most Renault cars once they reach about five years old. The fix is easy though, I did mine so it must be.
All I did was open the sun roof, remove the rubber surround from around the hole, "technical term there", close the sun roof, UN-clip and remove the interior light housing, drop the headlining a few inches, then undo the dozen or so bolts that clamp the sunroof frame together. Mine has an electric roof and i couldn't figure out how to take it out though. So I sat in the car and held it up while the wife cleaned around the roof edge under it with t-cut, and then ran around it with a bathroom sealant, That done, did the bolts up, and so far no more leaks.
As I say it's not hard, and believe me I'm no mechanic.
