    I had the usual drip from the front corner interior ceiling on my targa top I fixed the problem by thoroughly cleaning all the seals with rubber protectant and does not leak anymore !

    The weather stripping is starting to wear away and I have a steady stream of water when it rains hard on the passenger side. However there is no excessive noise from the Targa.

  • I experienced water leakage in the front top corner of both windows, where the window tapers down towards the front of the car. Thanks to the salt residue left over from the winter rains, it left a distinct mark on the seal rubber which showed me the exact problem area. I had some small scraps of silicone (already hardened) left over from a project. I made a small incision in the seal and stuffed the scraps in there to push out the seal. It seems to have helped, but more may be required.

    The trunk leaks both left and right sides. The weather stripping is worn and the roof leaks primarily on driver side. Anyone know the fix or the cost to replace all?
