Re: Leak with a Cabriolet Coupe

"2 years" - yes, they are probably a bit dried out by now but is always worth treating every seal that you can find on the car. There are several products available that are specifically made for the job. I use Auto Glym Vinyl and Rubber Care - other products are available - part of the blurb on the back says "for the exterior - provides a flexible, moisture repellent protective finish that can be used on trim, vinyl roofs and hoods". It can also be used inside as well. Vaseline, whilst has it's other uses, is not suitable in this instance

May or May not work but worth a try plus something that will be used on the car anyway. Worth a try. 100 for a leak test is a bit cheeky you could do that with a mate and a garden hose-pipe...
