New Sunroof Seal Arrived!

Yeah, I know. It's not a genuine Mercedes-Benz product, but the supplier didn't have one, this was in stock and was one seventh the price of a genuine. I took a punt. Let's see how good/bad it is.

Checking the Sunroof Seal

Since reassembling the roof after replacing the left arm, I needed to check to see if the seal was still water tight. I took the car outside and poured water over the roof and checking inside for leaks.
Unfortunately, it leaked like a bastard. I know that it's supposed to have the rain guard installed to prevent leak, but I hadn't installed mine yet.

Here's a photo of the sunlight shining brightly through the rear part of the panel.

Knowing I was going to have problem, I took the liberty of ordering a new rubber seal. I hope it arrives soon so I can install it over the holiday break!
