Re: Taking off the hard top
It's fairly common for the top to leak after removale from what I hear. I think it works like this; If the top has never been removed..or if it has just been a really long time, they say to get a new seal from the dealer. On my old K5 I bought one when I first took it off and replaced the seal when I put it back on. After that I took it off and on when I wanted with no problems. The old seals I took off were squished flat in places, and I see why it poss. would have leaked. The new seal had some squish factor going on later on, but looked like it would still seal good. Anyway, hope that's understandable. Basically, a seal that has been in place for a long time is likely to not reseal good, and it's better to get a new one.
