Hi Everyone, I have a 97 clio panache. I recently had the problem with water leaking through into the light fitting and immobiliser. I had to dry it out before i could start my car again :( The leak is not coming from the aerial as i have sealed this up, it is definatly coming from the sunroof.

I didnt realise this was a common fault until i have read through everybody elses comments!! I am glad I am not alone.

I am goin to give the rubber seal a really good clean incase it is the drains that are block but is there anyway i can buy another seal and replace the old one? I have been told that you cannot do this and have to replace the whole thing which would cost between £300 - £500 :mad:

Please could someone help!!

Hello & Welcome to the Forums Sonny,

In all probability it will be the drain tubes which run I think in side the car to the exterior.

Regards

Welcome to the forum, Sonny. There are a couple of how to's in the Clio FAQ re sunroofs. You may find, I'm pretty sure, that the 97 will not have drain holes. I believe the inner seal is available seperatly but not sure how much. Have a good read of the FAQ's 1st as I have had plenty of issues with mine and took a long hard look at it. It has been OK in the rain over the last few days and it's been faitly heavy.

thanks for the info about the drain holes, saves me time looking for something that isnt there!! I'm gonna read thro FAQ for more help but I am certain that it is the rubber seal that is causing the problem, as i can see daylight through the gap!! why cant I just buy a new seal? I keep getting told I have to replace the whole sunroof which I simply cannot afford to do ;o(

Thanks anyway, hope I get it sorted
