Having successfully replaced the rear window seal at the weekend (and not a moment too soon, the rear window nearly fell out on Friday!) I need to sort out the leaking sunroof. It's only a small leak but it drips onto the driver's seat, leading to a damp backside...

Looks like a new seal is in order, however identifying where the thing came from seems to be tricky. I've seen some suggestions on Mini forums that they're the same as a Land Rover Defender. Not sure if this is a Mini sunroof though.

Here's what's printed on the glass:

Sicursive 4FC tempered
DOT-36 AS3 M182
E-00226
43R-005016

Anyone out there that can help, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Still hunting for this. Any advice regards getting something made? I've sent messages to lots of rubber extruding companies to see if they have something to fit, and I've trawled through a few catalogues but can't find anything. Most places that offer custom extruding need a minimum order of 500 metres, or have setup costs that are far too high.

Dennis - thanks for the link. Unfortunately they have ones that are the right size, but the cross section is completely different. Hopefully I've found a company that can produce a short run of a few metres, just waiting for a price now!

I've had two prices so far, it's several hundred pounds to get somemanufactured so I may have to find a good approximation that someone has in stock and re-engineer it...

I think I've found something to do the job...well, sort of. It's an MG Midget screen seal but has a similar profile. In the meantime, at least the roof has stopped leaking - had to silicone seal the thing closed to do that though...

After a bit of trial and error, the Midget screen seal, plus a piece of expanded neoprene on top and some black silicone to cover up the join - it's not leaking any more! Well, if it's got through the last week of "summer" it'll survive anything...
