      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Leaking Roof Gutter On Grande Cmax

    Hiya, Tried to clear out any bits of leaves and rubbish from the gutter with a brush. Noticed a bit of a reduction in the trickle inside. I gave the black plastic trim a good pull today and have realised they are just stick down with blobs of mastic. There are two tori headed screws at the back of the gutter so I think my next thing is the see if the water is getting in around the screws. The only worry is that I don't know what they hold. Think I'm on the way to finding the problem now though. Cheers Jeff
  2. Leaking Roof Gutter On Grande Cmax

    Ok but how do I loosen screws? Do I have to remove head lining?
  3. Hiya all, I have a 2011 grande cmax which leaks water into the spare wheel space. I have had no luck with ford as they only cover leaks for 12 months! I have traced the leak to the back end of TE black trim on the roof gutter. I can see it running down the inside of the car. No leak when the hose is put anywhere lower than the roof. My car has a black flat trim instead of the roof bars. Does anyone know how to take these black plastic trims off so that I can see where the leak is? From experience these trims are not the kind of thing which is best levered off with a screwdriver. Amy help would be great. Jeff
