Leaking T Top

Ok. It's just about a given, that the t tops drip onto the knee of the driver in rain. Sort of over it now so want to get new rubber seal. Is it the door seal or the targa seal that causes the drip. Targa seals look ok to me, so assuming it's the upper door seal. Would that be right? Cheerz

The leak is between the two of them so technically it's both that are leaking.

There are a few write ups across some of the older forums on ideas to resolve the leaks but new seals will do the trick :)

Pop in & see me one day & I can show you another trick that should work also.

Sounds interesting Mungyz, might have to add that to the growing list of jobs for my Z too – never been quite the same since we did the door hinges!

No problem JB
There are a couple of adjustments we can try & there are some tricks for helping out with the seals :)

You can use petroliem jelly to help seal things up, also if you inject/insiert a pliable foam type sustance in to the rubber seals it will tighten things up & help a lot.

It's pretty trickey to explain & would take longer to write it all out than what it would take to just fix it laugh

Check the drain is not blocked, this is a VERY common cause of leaking t top roofs on Z32s
