Convertible rear window water leak normal?

Postby Ken1222 » Thu Aug 04, 2016 4:19 pm

Hi guys,

Is a small amount of water leak in the rear window normal? I took my car to a shop that specialized in convertibles and the guy stitched on a new rear window for me.

A week later I decide to wash the car and to my dismay I discover leaks coming in through a few small sections of the rear window stitching.

The guy said that small amount of water leakage is normal? He said that the only way is to go with a complete OEM roof. Or silicon the seals.

He said, "I probably should have told you this before".

He also said this piece was designed to catch the water

Is he right? I've never owned a convertible before but this sounds like a load of horse s***.

Water can come in on the OEM setup too - there are gaps between the rear window and the rest of the top on the sides of the window. You can stick your hand right in. When the top is up and latched, the gaps should be sealed up due to the tightness of the fabric top and window.
