Chippo: I know you're saying it doesn't make much difference but it does help. Although its just a window glass stabiliser, try removing it and see the play in the window towards the outside of the car, it is quite important.

Everyones situation is different, for example your sons.

But you have to consider adjusting things isn't always the solution, it sometimes can be that you're making up for something else that is causing the issue. Sometimes a few things work in unison to provide a good seal, I'm pretty sure this is part of the package.

I find it to have solved quite a few leaky windows on the S2000, especially when they are leaking from the intersection of the A-pillar/window glass/roof corner.

I find parking nose uphill cuts the leaky seals down a lot.

As I inferred my comments are based on a huge survey of 2 cars!

And form the stats of this survey I deduced that the bits of plastic do not do a lot
1) Toby's car which has them fitted still , leaked and rattled
2) Mine that was sans the things doesn't leak , although it used to rattle
There you have the results of my analysis of the result of my survey , so not exactly a big study making a definitive answer I just offer my experience

So now what do you suggest one does instead of fiddling , I could have purchased new strikers where they are worn, along with catches , lord alone knows how much those
4 bits would cost . Fit new seals again cost
So being a fiddler , I looked at the problem and came up with a few possible fixes , my roof rattled and leaked from early on in the cars life , Honda never resolved it , I did. Lots of people fit bits of plastic hose on the hooks , I tried that lasted a week , the slotting of the catches is a well known badge and it helps, other have also packed the catches in the past
What did you do to cure all the cars with leaks and roof rattles ?

When thinking to waterproofing the roof consider the expert to do that with your car. As if you try to fix it without knowledge it will cause major damage to the car.So always hire the waterproofing contractor to fix the leaks well.
