Interior light leakage??

Post by peugeot30v6 » Tue Apr 28, 2015 6:29 pm

Recently I have noticed that the interior light on my HDI has been leaking a bit, small drops yes but it has already blown the reading light. What could it be? It does have a sunroof.

The aeriel is a prime suspect as its directly above the light, remove and refit with a dab if tiger seal would be my first step.

Thanks for the advise. I took the interior light off to find some very damp electrics, used a hairdryer to dry them and replaced the antenna seal. Threw some water on there and no leaking.
