My car has over 120,000 miles, runs great, oil changes every 3-5K. Love this car! Last month before I took it to the car wash to hand wash (can’t go through auto with the soft top), always careful not to use high power around the windows, but this time I tried the “hot wax”. The next time that we had a very hard rain, I noticed water dripping into the car from the top of the windows right around were the rubber seams meet. I thought, ok, maybe it’s because it was such a hard rain. However… when ever it rains more than a very light rain, water is getting in from the same place on both sides of the car.

What can I do to stop the leak? I’m hoping that I don’t have to replace the whole top, nothing else is wrong and I don’t see a leak anywhere else.
Thanks,
Cat

After 11 years, the rubber seals may be just worn out. Check with the parts counter at the Mitsu dealership to see if replacement seals are available.
