    Just found out today that the sunroof on my 230E W123 1984 has started leaking, I need to get replacement seals to go around the sunroof, the sunroof is a manual one, Does anybody know where i could get this done, I am currently in Hastings but come up to London once a month, Thank You

    Are you sure its not the drain holes that are blocked rather than the seals themselves?

    (assume its a factory sunroof?)

    even if there is a gap, water should run down the channels and not into the car.. I would say you would be better to check the drain holes first as seals are not cheap and not always necessary in any case.
