hi there, im Sarah, i own a 91 Ford Escort Cabriolet Ltd Edition model and am having trouble with water accumulating in my boot, ive stripped the boot lining out but cant find were its comming from.

I do have a small tear on each side of the roof by the pivot point and was wondering if this could be the problem

any help would be great

thanks

Hi,

I have a 1990 cabby and when it had a small tear in the seam of the roof on the top it used to drip into the car, so this is more than likely what is happening with you. You will probably need a new roof as they dont recomend that youu patch them as when the roof is being put up and down the repair will come loose and leak again.

Hope this helps

Cheers H,

Iv had a look round and the best price i have been able to find for a new roof (supplied and fitted) is 345 in any colour, not sure what colour to go for as the car is blue mabe white or black. :rolleyes:

Hi,

Thats a really good price. I recon black for your roof, if you go for white you will have to keep it really clean or it will make your car look tatty. My cabby is metalic grey and I went for a black one and just having a new roof made my car look nicer. Also when you get it back with the new roof go and buy some roof treatment to keep it suple it cost a bit but its well worth it as when you put your roof up and down this can make it split also hot and cold weather.

Let me know when youve had it done I bet it will look well nice

i got a lot of roof treatment products when i first got the car and clean and condition the roof once a week, it does make a difference. Im hopeing to have the new roof with in the next couple of weeks.
