Leaking Panoramic Roof Estate Sport

Post by Sonic78 » Thu Jan 09, 2014 1:22 pm

My Estate 170 Sport has recently (from November 2013) started leaking into the A Pillars, Vanity lights, Sun visors and onto the seats. Last weekend the roof console was soaked causing the roof to open by itself in heavy rain. It is a September 2012 62 plate.
It is currently in the dealers who have ordered a new part which I think they said was called the "carrier bracket" or words to that effect (they apparently already checked drain tubes through A-Pillars etc). The part is on "back order" with no delivery time available and I am having to drive a Golf Plus courtesy car!

The car seems to leak worse when parked pointing downhill.

Is this a problem that others have seen or just an isolated case?

I thought I had left leaking sun-roofs behind when I sold my last XR3i !!!!

The car is superb in all other areas and it's very frustrating.

Any help or advice appreciated.
