    Hello,

    I'm having an excessive moisture problem with my N16 Almera. My windscreen collects alot of moisture and sometimes this even freezes on the inside! I've read that moisture can come in from the rear lights. Where exactly on the rear lights should I check the sealant? Are there other common places to check for leaks?

    My foot wells are all dry to the touch but I do have a sunroof that doesn't get used.

    Yes the rear light sealant can be checked. You need to unscrew the lights from inside behind the carpet, then pull the light out. It needs some force. A little heat can help; hot air gun or hair dryer. Use sikaflex to replace or add more sealant.

    Worth checking the wheel well too, to see if any water has collected there, or to see if the bung is missing as that well let humidity in.
