Pointers on troubleshooting a leaking top

Recommended Posts

Well I woke up this morning to find dampness in the car behind the driver's seat. I know the computer is back there so this greatly concerns me. I've checked the drain for the top and it is clear and could not find any areas where it appeared water was getting in. I did park sideways and the right front would have been about 6 inches lower so I don't know if that could be the problem?

I have a 2003 with the glass rear window and could not find any leaks near the window itself. Any other areas I need to be checking? I'm expecting rain again tonight.

Okay, I think I found my issue thanks to an old post I found. This morning when I found the dampness I started looking at the foal drain trays and drain holes and while accessing them I noticed two cips where the top material should be attached and the driver's side was not in the clip. I attached it and just moved on not thinking that it may have been my problem.

This afternoon I found a post from July of last year where this was the problem for another individual. I'll know for sure tonight but I have dried the area as much as possible and verified that the area where the immobilizer computer is located is bone dry.

If things are wet again tomorrow I will do the tupperware mod until I can find my problem.

This may seem like a dumb question but how do I access the bolts on the front of the seat rails to remove it? I can easily get to the two bolts on the back rail but the front ones appear to be covered by a plastic molding that I don't want to force and break.

Having just got the car I'm a bit rattled to already have an issue, hopefully this fixed it and I can go on and enjoy it.

The plastic "covers" pull straight out. I have had to use a common screwdriver to carefully get them started then used my fingers to complete the job. They a little "fiddly" to get them square when you push them back on.
