    On the drivers side on my R230 I have a water leak between the roof and windscreen A pillar seals.

    Is there an adjustment to tighten the roof up?

    Had a wet leg yesterday!

    Thanks

    OK you can edit out your address,,,, please not that if you treat all your rubber deals with gummy pledge or a good silicon grease the roof will close tighter

    The only thing I have for a 209 is the replacing the seal over the door window and I have sent that to you.

    The other seals require some lubrication with a silicon oil like Gumi pledge

    Is there a standard fix for a small ( and by this I mean tiny ) gap appearing on passenger side seal between front of roof and the A-pillar? Can an adjustment be made to realign the roof?
