Default Renault Megane CC leaking

Does anyone else have trouble with Renault Megane CC (54 plates or above) leaking water. I've had constant trouble with mine, everytime it rains water comes through the seals and the car is more like a boat - water coming in from all sides!

I've tried taking it back to the dealership, but it comes back worse!

Can anyone recommend any solutions?

Best advice is to sell it during a period of dry weather. Get a bad one of any car like this and it's trouble. Friends have an EOS which has leaked on and off for three years. A neighbour worked in a Renault dealership and they used to see the same cars come in time after time for leaking roof.

Opening the roof on a slope causes the problem and solving it can be an expensive business.

Quite so.
Frustratingly most dealers seem to be ill informed on this issue.
Originally written in relation to the VW EOS but applies to all cars with hard folding top roofs that rely on supple rubber seals to seal out water:

This sorts it for *most* people. Probably obvious advice but also make sure you don't use a jet wash anywhere near the seals.
