Q My Renault Clio Sport has a glass-panel sunroof that has sprung a leak above the passenger-side sun visor. What do you advise?
A Leaking Clio roofs aren’t uncommon, especially as age takes its toll. The specialists at Betta Windscreens (http://www.bettawindscreens.co.uk/) say the most common source of water ingress in a Clio is the seal between the sunroof’s frame and the roof. The only way to solve this properly is to remove the frame, clean the roof and frame surfaces with white spirit and then refit it using plenty of silicone sealant. If you’re DIY-minded, it’s not a difficult job, though it is a tedious one. Betta Windscreens charges either £125 or £150, depending on whether the sunroof is manual or electric. A 12-month guarantee is included. DP
