Roof leak

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).
Forum rules
Questions about the Pluriel Roof system can be asked here
No engine, gearbox or running gear questions
Think: Pluriel roof and rear window jobs
Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi,
My pluriel roof leaks when stationary and obviously when it rains. The points of entry are the end of the roof runners behind the visors.
They just seem to end too short.
Is this something a Pluriel owner just has to put up with or is there something I can do...

Can you take some pictures of the parts in question and follow these instruction on attaching images to the forum. It may help show which parts are leaking and can be compared to other pluriels.

Hi,

Did I read somewhere that there is a way to adjust the roof bar?... I'll need to check...

Hi Bloxi
Did you get to the bottom of your roof leak. I just bought a Pluriel and am kicking myself for not having tested for water leaks before buying. One of my leaks is exactly where yours is. Any help appreciated.
Thanks Aryhian
