By opening the roof so that the boot opens fully, the roof will start to move back, turn off when it has opened about 12" to 14" inches and place a piece of wood under to roof an A pillar and pull the roof forward. The roof will stay where you left it for about 7 minutes, once pulled forward it will stay there

You can now get to the top of the C pillar seals to lubricate them with a good silicon grease

If you need to remove the rail that sits under the rear window so that new adhesive like Loctite super flex, just remove the nuts and it all lifts off,,surfaces must be clean.

With the boot opened as below,,you can change struts and electronic components with ease by just leaning over.

If you rear seals under the C pillar inner corners look like the picture below then they need to be glued up, and I will do a follow up for this.
