The water leaks into my boot and the left or passenger side inside the car leaving huge puddles of water inside. very unpleasant. also the 2007 MX5 convertable - no leaks in roof or rubbers. help please.


  • If water is getting in from the driver's or passenger's window near the soft top weather-strip, shut the door after closing the window. When putting up the hood, lower the windows while you secure the hood latches & then raise the windows. These actions force the window to contact the weather-strip a bit differently than when the window is closed while the door is closed.
  • There are two common places an MX5 will leak water into the interior - where the top meets the windshield frame- and around the windows where they contact the mouldings. Leaks at the windshield frame are usually caused by dirty or damaged mouldings or the latches not being tight enough. Usually you will notice the top will squeak and rattle if it isn't latched down tight.
  • Wetness in the trunk/boot can be caused by a range of factors. 1. Dried out weather-stripping around the trunk. 2. A cracked rain rail on the convertible top. 3. Dried out weather-stripping around the tail lights.
  • There are three mouldings that fit around the window, and water can leak either between them and the window, or between them and the top. Each of these mouldings is attached to a metal 'track' that is secured to the top frame with two screws. The window moulding that is closest to the windshield header is held on by two screws, the others have nothing holding them.
  • Water can collect in the weather-strips due to small crack or splits along the edge of the hood where it folds after a years of regular top-up top-down use. The only real solution is a new hood.

How do you adjust the windows on a 1988 celica convertible to stop water leaks. It has electric windows.


You have to take off the door panel. There should be adjustments in there to set where the window stops.

93 Cutlass Supreme convertibles driver door is sagging. I tried to tighten up the door hinges and it didn't help. What is the way to fix a saggy door with these long 2 door cars?


Make sure that the hinge pins are not worn. If they are OK, add a few shims or if you have a slide adjustment move it back at the bottom, or forward at top (slides only)

Does anyone know where the motor for the convertible top is located on a 01 pontiac firebird?


its actually a very intricate system of motors and support arms i wouldnt try to do it yourself. pontiacs are notorious for having problems with those type of motors like windows, headlights, and convertable tops. as a matter of fact i had a pontiac sunfire with the same problem i just got the convertable top up and left it that way cause it got stuck half way up once so stop using it till you get it fixed or you might have a permanent convertable.

Door hinge


The door is bolted to the hinges, work out which hinge has most movement in its hinge (Top or lower), this one will need to be moved forward or back to compensate for wear in hinge.
Also take note of door gap along fender (When door is closed) to
prevent it damaging paintwork.
Hope this helps, MMP
