Alfetta GTV6 Sunroof.

The sunroof on my '6 doesn't seem to sit quite right and I'm thinking that this may be adjustable. Anyone know 'owt about this ?

I also have a rainwater leak and strongly suspect that the sunroof may be to blame although I have yet to confirm this. I suppose the logical first step would be to fit new seals but does any one know where these can be bought ?

Any other advice most gratefully received !

Thanks.

Not sure about the adjustment... but the sunroof leaks here too... but as discussed the other day I have a garage (even if it has a hole in it, good old Gravesham Council). 99% sure blocked drain channels, mine are bloked but I am not fiddling with that yet!

My first step is to put a High Pressure Airline into the drains and see what happens, If they are blocked this should clear them. If there is a leak in them hopefully the air will give me an indication where the problem is. ( As the plastic trim on the inside of the " A " Post makes a rapid break for freedom ! )

Was going to do this before Christmas but the freezing weather put a stop to this as I figured that if there is frozen water blocking the pipes the air wouldn't work.

Next week it is then, if we stay above freezing for more than an hour or two !!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Don't put that high pressure line down there, you will just push the pipe off of the sunroof connection. The only way to re-attach it then is to remove the headlining and re-attach. The headlining is fixed in everywhere and held in by the windscreen!

Have you tried hot water in the pipe area and with some tweezers picking the **** out? Thats my next attempt!

Mmm, you are making me think now Peter.

It's not a matter that I think that the drain pipes are just iced up, I think that they are blocked. Weeks ago I poured water into the sunroof and it seemed to me that the water wasn't running away, even with some encouragement from me. Tried a thin piece of stiffish wire but not surprisingly I didn't get too far with this.

Any ideas ?
