Re: Water damange??

You need to check the sunroof drains for blockage. Its a common issue on a lot of cars, you can wind the roof back and look for the two holes on the front corners, pour some water down these holes and see if it runs out underneath the car. If it doesn't you have issues which can be cured by pushing some stiff but thin wire down the holes to push the crud out. You can then run some HOT water through the lines to remove any muddy deposits left, this normally does the trick. If the water does run out under the car then you have to look for water ingression elsewhere, you say you've had a new windscreen, thats a good place to start.
