Re: Clio sunroof - loose bolt

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure. I would attempt to pry a gap under the oval/round cover and squirt some sealant in if it doesn't just pop off. I would assume that it is just a cover though but, try the inside first, as damage to the outside is more likely to make it worse.

Careful, as it may be brittle. If it does detach, you could fashion a poly-washer from something like an old oil bottle (cleaned) and pop it either above (recommended) or below to increase the pressure on the seal; or apply some liquid gasket/sealant.

Someone else with more experience with the sunroof hinge brackets, please chip in!
