    Only happend when i used the roof a few times and i also cleaned the roof with autoglym roof cleaner.
    Got about 1cm of water in drivers footwell now :(
    Not sure if i was a little harse with the cleaning of the roof ..some places on it where a little dirty and i may have caused a weekness.
    Are there any better ways of waterproofing than autoglym?or anyone here had simular problems with roof leaks before and know a few tips on how to cure it ... As im sure theres more rain to come in Uk ..chears

    Just a thought, but other than the water in the footwell are there any other indications your roof has leaked?

    It may be worth checking if your drain plugs under and near the battery are clear if the roof doesnt appear to have leaked.

    Hey thanks for getting back to me ... Ive used the Autglym stuff as the direction stated ..but i noticed with the roof being wet .not all the roof was repelling the water so ive recovered those places again.
    Will check the drain plugs 2moro Kiwi and keep looking for possible places .. ..thanks again ppl :)
