916 Spider Roof
My name is Peter and I have just bought a 916 spider. its a 98 2.0 TSpark with a manual roof mechanism.
I love it, it looks great, it drives great, its brilliant... BUT... the roof has a leak and I cant see where it's coming from. I will buy whatever new seals I need to if someone can tell me where the leak is likely to be coming from..
I live in Edinburgh, and it rains here, a lot...
The rear window uses velcro at each side to keep it in place, this part of the roof looks like it has shrunk a bit and the velcro is not making a very good contact, the gap obviously goes right inside the cabin so I am thinkthing that the rain is simply running through the velcro and down to the floor (its the floor that is wet and now the drivers seat is damp at the bottom)
the drivers side window seal is not great and i need tro run the window down half a centimetre because if i dont it mangles the seal at the top of the window, in the rain it drips onto my leg :-(
anyway, so I would like some advice on that lot, plus I would like to buy a hard top too in case I cant fix the leaks, and for use in the winter, so if anyone can help with that I'd be most grateful.
