Using a self-tapper instead of the proper screw says it all really :rolleyes:

The rest of it seems fair enough, but it is only about fitting eccentric guides to the T-bars, no other leak cures mentioned.

Yes, the few mistakes he has made does not inspire confidence. :no:

I'm obviously one of the lucky ones regarding leaking T-Bars.

My car is 23 years old and only leaked from the front drivers window corner and passenger rear pillar side.

Occasionally rubbing peanut oil into the rubbers all round more or less solved the problem as peanut oil swelss the rubbers without damaging them.

I then fitted eccentric guides and get no leaks whatsoever unless I hit the aforementioned areas directly about 2 inches away from these spots, even then its a few slight drips at best.

Had thunderstorms today and noticed a small drop on the passenger bolster. When I drove off the seat got a fair bit wetter as if water had collected in with the mechanism. Any advice on the most likely culprit? Didn't seem to get any leaks driving through rain when I got the car and parked in moderate rain seemed ok so it can't be terrible but would like to solve it.

Cheers
