Evening all,

Don't think mine is leaking yet, but noted that the 'felt' that the glass beds into seems to have disappeared mostly.

Has anybody replaced this themselves? Is it straight forward?

Many ta's!

(assuming that Mercs are the same as others :rolleyes:) Sunroofs don't make a water tight seal, the felt 'seal' just restricts the amount of water that goes passed the sunroof. There's a drain tube in each corner that takes the water away to the ground.

Sounds good to me!

Noticed it when polishing it the other weekend - looks a bit untidy, so need to get sorted.

Also read that other thread about rejuvenating seals - gummi juice to be acquired shortly!
