Hi Greg

Thanks to your help I was able to remove the rail and there was no rust at all but I could see some damage to the mastic seam near to the windshield.

I suspect caused by the replacement shield 3 years ago.

However, I applied some mystical all along, put all back and took the car south of the river to find some rain.

A good hour in the rain and no leak.

We are due rain tomorrow (Sunday) and I am confident we are now dry.

Many thanks Rob Venables
