Leaking Freedom Top

anyone had their freedom top leaking? mine is leaking during a hard overnight rain right where the two front sections meet, just behind the windshield. Of course it leaked right on the GPS i wasn't parked at a strange angle or anything. It continued to leak as i drove. I have been through three different car wash's and hand washed it twice with no leaks at all. Not sure what the issue is. I stopped and took the drivers side freedom section off to make sure i didn't have the weather stripping/seal folded causing it to leak, that looked fine. The screws in he back section were tight as were all the other connections, not sure what the heck to do. anyone have a fix (other than take it to the dealer?) any help is apprciated. Love the freedom top, but this leak sucks especially with the location.

thanks

Before taking it to the dealer try taking the two panels off and clamping them down again.

Mine leaked a few times because I wasn't installing the panels correctly. I haven't had a leak since I looked at the manual and installed the panels accordingly.

Same here, only leaked the times I didn't install properly. it takes some getting used to and care in placing them correctly but once you get it down, no more leaks!

Mine leaked until I repositioned the front panels. I also do not tighten the the screws on the roll bar too tight. if they are too tight the front leaks.
My rear window still leaks however. Only after a good soaking rain?
