1997 Renault Clio Phase three leaking sunroof

Post by The PIT » 10 Jul 2002, 17:36

Our local dealship claim that the fault is due to the securing bolts becoming striped so the whole frame becomes loose. The only solution they say is a new complete sunroof.
Does anyone know whether this is true or not?
Also where are the drainage holes as I can't see any and the rain goes striaght into the central roof console.

Unless one actually see's the problem it's difficult to advise, but there may be other solution's, one may be to drill out the offending thread and insert a captive nut often refered to as a "pop nut" because it is similar in action to a pop rivet.
Or it may be possible to drill out and re-tap with a larger diameter thread.
