Hi all,recently I’ve noticed a small leak that drips off the bonnet release handle after washing the car or rain.I’ve got limited knowledge on cars but I did take the cover off the side of the dashboard on the drivers side and you can see it’s been coming in there.all sunroof drains are running clear.any ideas please

I would check where the cable passes through the bulkhead and the seal / grommet is intact. It's also worth checking that the drainage path is clear on the driver's side scuttle area.

Cheers bob!!
Long time no speak, yes the drain from sunroof runs clear I tipped a jug of water down each one to eliminate that. Then waited 10 mins to make sure it wasn’t tracking down after a few mins.next I tried the windscreen but nothing leaked.it seems to be when I spray water on the roof but the drains are clear.it’s gonna have to be a visit to a garage tomorrow

Glad it was a relatively easy fix.
