Re: Whistling Sunroof on the Motorway

Hi Andy.

My line of thinking/reasoning is that these seals depend on the plastic/rubber's flexibility. And I was just wondering if something which can help to rejuvenate the effect of weathering could help to restore the springiness that your seals would appear to have lost.

In all honesty, I don't know if that will solve the problem, but given the cost & complexity of replacing seals - I'd be tempted to give it a try.

And no, I didn't think you had a cabrio, I may be 'old skool' where an estate is an estate (or a shooting brake...), but even I know of these items known as Sport Tourers...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
