Hi,

It's been raining cats and dogs up here today and my new pride and joy (Nov 2002 52 plate SLK) seems to have a very small leak but still a leak none the less coming from the passenger side roof/window

I've put the arrow on to show the actual drip

I think it may be getting in around the join in the roof as there looks to be a tiny wee bit of gap on the side only really noticeable in the dry if I can get a decent photo in the dry I will.

Any ideas will be gratefully received,
Paddy

Similar problem

I have the same problem with my 320CE roof. I posted it last week as an alignment problem as I think it is the cause. Are there adjustments that can be made to it as well?

Regards

Thanks

Thanks - just printed it.

Is it the same for the CE (1994) - hard to tell from the pictures but think you have put me in a different direction as i was looking at adjusting the soft top rather than the receiver.

On hols next week so will give it a go.
