Megane 2 cc roof locking mechanism problem


I really hope this is the right topic to ask this.....
After looking for one for a long time, i have found a 2005 Megane cc 2.0 t that i like. There is only one problem with it: the roof somwhow does not seem to lock properly. It does, but i think its a bit off. On the right side, where the locking mechanism is, at the top of the windshield, i can see that the lock itself is unevenly worn on one side, and on a bumpy road it gives out some hideous creaks that are too loud to be dismissed. Other than that the roof works fine, altough it does crack a bit when it touches the windshield as it closes. Adding to that, on the same side, the rear window leaks a bit after going through an automatic car wash.

Can you guys give me some advice if this kind of problem is easy to fix, or should i avoid this car entirely? Or putting it another way, is there a way to fix these kinds of damages once and for all, or not? I dont want to change the whole roof.
Fix, or flee?

Thanks a lot!
