Check that the plastic screen is still flexible and there are no creases in it. Open and close the roof a few times and check it shuts correctly each time (sometimes the catch does engage properly.

Open the roof half way and see what crap has collected in the roof compartment - I found Thurderbird Two in mine!

That's all I can think of.

Thanks Poo, some sound advice there.

Do you know if the roof motors are covered by the OPC warranty ?

Any soft top car, I firstly check footwells for moisture, also seats may be damp if roof is no good or it may be seals.

clocks on dash may contain moisture.

Good luck Spy. :)
