    One is more than enough, it's best to stretch it out a bit as u go around else it will splurge out when it done up!!

    Re: Sunroof Leak, Please HELP!!!

    Thank you for your reply.

    I would like to ask you one more question.

    Is the sunroof more than 2 pieces? The metal frame under the roof and the plastic frame which goes over the roof.

    What i have sone so far, is add some mastic near the drain plugs as i believe there is a gap on the plastic there as well.

    No those are supposed to be there, water is allowed to come through the seal around the glass, that is the purpose of the two drains in the corners. Yes the plastic part is the top part then the metal work of the car is sandwiched with the metal frame inside.

    The only place it will be leaking is between the plastic and the roof of the car, you can tell if it's loose by pushing around the sunroof and you will be able to move the tin work of the roof of the car up and down!

    Hope thatakes sence!? I really need to upload some pics when I next do one, which I think is Thursday!

    As a fellow clio driver and also a sunroof repairer i'd recommend visiting www.bettawindscreens.co.uk or searching them on google for all the information needed to solve all your problems. I would copy and paste but i don't want to be accused of stealing their information. :-) Good luck. A dry bum on the way to work is possible :-)

    Re: Sunroof Leak, Please HELP!!!

    Can i just say aswell don't use mastic. I repair sunroofs for a living and it is not advisable at all. It's just going to make it harder to repair in the long run and could mean paying for a new roof aswell as the repair.

    Haha very good! You can always trust someone to be ignorant on here!! Yes Renault Clio sun roofs are crap to start with but when fixed they will not leak ever again. The non Renault way or the silicone sealer way will cause issues!!

    The original foam seal is the problem, it's basically a piece of sticky back foam tape (think number plate sticky pads) this is not capable of sealing when the plastic roof frame is subject to expansion in hot weather, warpage and general movement of the chassis. The mastic we use is perfect for sorting the leaks as it allows for all the above to happen.

    Up to you what you do as a 'professional roof repairer' I'm only trying to help people by showing them the way it's been done for several years with not one come back dating back to the clio 1!!
