The t-top models are prone to water leaks from the t-tops weather strip seals. Our technicians tell us that replacing the all of the t-top related weather strips will commonly correct most leaks. Care should be taken when removing and installing the t-tops in order to avoid damage to the weather strips.

how can i repair my water leak on my t-top back side of t-tops
water runs in on passenger side creating a puddle on floor behind front seat.
Water leaks from T-tops - Need to find drain hole to unclog
It's inevitable, they will leak at some point, but they sure look good with the T-tops off don't they.
I suppose in 16 years one should expect to replace the weather strip seals - I haven't yet, and therefore leakage. Once the passenger floor area was completely flooded.
My T-Tops were leaking when I bought the car. I've tried everything from weatherstrip replacement to silicone with no success. I'm giving up and will probably just silicone them permanently in place. I'd never buy another car with T-Tops. Probably why no new cars have them today, they were a bad idea.
T-tops leak. Rear hatch leaks.
Broken seal on driver side T-Top. To solve this issue, reseal with clear silicone or replace the seal all together.
Leaks from the front therefore water drips on the shift stick and panel
Passenger side T-top leaks, or drainage route to bottom of door is leaking, water collects on passenger side rear floor.
car was parked for a few months and went back and then the whole interior was molded. seems that when it rains moisture got inside the car and mold got out of control.
Rain leaking around T-Top and hatchback gaskets. Hasn't been fixed yet.
Still not fixed. T Tops leak and are noisey when driving
Water leaks on driver side only. Seals are busted so I would think if I pay 300 for complete kit that would fix it.
Leaking around the window due to the seal
