    as it got a sun roof . if so the drain tubes are most likely blocked . if not can you be a bit more specific as to where the drip is coming from

    Check the drain holes that run down the windscreen pillars...thin plastic like strimmer wire is good for unblocking just go slow. Cleaned mine when I got a few drips from the sun visor corner. Fine since.

    Vaseline, run some along the rubber seals and see it that helps re moisture the seals, Iv not used this one but iv seen it done to a few soft tops when iv been valeting on dealers cars,
