    Default Another leak any advice :*(

    literally my signum has caused me nothing but problems since buying it lol, this is the 2nd leak i now need to fix on top of the 650 bill i had last week

    talk me out of buying a mondeo ST someone!

    but as for now i need to fix it cos the condensation is so bad,

    basically i was messing about with the back passenger light and took it out of the roof lining and water started dripping, felt around up there a bit and its wet as hell,

    i have heard people on here complain about it being from the aerial base, but this is a signum not a vectra so just hoping its the same kind of fix, as to me the aerial base is a long way away from where the water is.

    rather than buying a used aerial base i was going to buy a dummy shark fit style one and go to town with clear silicon and hope for the best, so if anyone has any advice at all, literally anything it would be greatly appreciated, many thanks guys

    I'll talk you out of buying a mondeo st but keep all sharp objects away from me. I owned one for nearly 2 years and hated every minute. It did have good gadgets, but rarely had a need to use them as it spent most of its life on a garage ramp

    Sounds like the areal base is leaking the same as the Vectra can/does.

    As for a diesel Mondeo I will post up a picture tomorrow of one with the rocker cover removed due to the chain slipping and breaking the cam carrier and pulling the threads out of the head.

    A bit of silicone around where it goes through the roof might do the trick
