Hi Guys

I seem to have water coming in from the rubber that goes around the top of the drivers window, it seems to be coming in through where the rubber meets in the middle if you know what i mean. Just wondered if anyone knows a way of stopping this? i thought about trying some silicon but not sure if it would work. Its really bloody annoying as i got to work this morning with a wet ass and wet arm from it dripping on me the whole journy


if anyone knows of a solution id be grateful

Cheers
Liam.

I found it was alot to do with when putting the roof back up after having it down... i cant remember which way round solved the problem for me but it was either making sure the windows are fully wound up before putting the roof back up, or having them down when putting it up and winding them up after the roof is secured up... strange i know but seemed to stop the tempremental problem for me.

It's the second one matey, wind the windows down an inch or two, close and lock the roof, then wind 'em up again to get a much better seal


You could also try a dab of Vaseline or similar in the gap, which might help.

If it's an actualy gap between the seals you could try adjusting the position of the steel backing plate, replacement (secondhand) seals, or bridging the gap with a suitable thin strip of rubber or vinyl stuck to the end of the seal.

If it's due to the window stopping too low you can remove the door card and adjust the window stops which control the final height of the closed window - they are held on by nuts along the inside top of door.
