MK1 ownership is all about



  Ph1 track 172
sitting here at 2am knowing that half of the torrential rain outside will end up inside the car!

FML and my leaking sunroof!

is there anyone else out there that cringes for their cars sake when it thunders down with rain??

The roof on my brabus roadster leaks seriously about once a fortnight, seemingly fir no reason... I have to keep a collection of towels covering the inside in bad weather.

ahh im glad im not alone

thankfully my car is stripped of everthing bar the dash and bucket seats,
but part of me is still itching to venture outside with a roll of paper towel to start the mopping up! :(

Lol.
I've just given up with it. I've replaced the seals, used a silicone spray. I just can't work out why it happens, it can go a month without leaking and then fill up 3 days in a row. Bloody thing. It's lucky it's fun to drive or I'd have set fire to it by now :)

I would mind if it was a 15year old car, but it's barely 5!

Credit where credit's due though, none of the interior seems to be water damaged at all, touch wood.

Why not just seal it shut?

I've got an electric sunroof on my valver that i'll be removing soon to fit a solid perspex panel and it pains me because its 100% faultless and leak free. Seems a shame! lol.

Why do it then? Weight issues?

  a better one
I used to have a E36 3 series that would leak into the passenger footwell just near where all the electric were. It was on my mind every time it rained....I think it was a problem from the sunroof...

The sun roof on my old MK1 would leak at evey opportunity, always when going through a right-hand turn resulting in the passenger getting a thorough soaking. Now I have a MK2 with a sqeaky sunroof. I'm not sure which I prefer to be honest.

My little mk 1 leaks big time. When i go round a bend it is like a dog is cocking his leg above me, shower of water ends in my lap.

Its getting annoying now!

I used to have a vtr saxo. And it leaked through the interior light. And that was through the ariel. Pissed me off so much one day I just ripped off the ariel and stuck a bit of duct tape over the hole lol sorted it. Car was s**t anyway lol

Its such a simple fix, take the sunroof out remove the small nuts and bolts holding frame to body, some clear builders silicon all round and replace everything hours job and forget about when it rains;)
