    I have a very small leak on the drivers die of the roof made worse when driving. Looking at the seal there is a rubber pipe inside the seal which runs from one side of the roof to the other a the top of the windscreen. This pipe/tube looks like it is comressed and not forming a full seal. It is easy to pull out so dies anyone know where you can buy replacements?

    Many thanks

    Have you tried putting some lube on the seal first , either gummipfledge or silicone grease . See if that sorts it

    Try and do it on a hot day , so you can leave the roof folded down and give the seal time to "plump up" in the heat .
