It might need new weatherstripping, and make sure that the drains are clear, you might have to flush them out somehow.

Take a coat-hanger and run it down the four drains - usually that's what causes leaks. If that doesn't work - you may have to change both the seals.

Where are the drain holes that need cleaned with a coathanger located? Mine doesnt leak, but I would like to check the drains anyway. My seal is cracking also. Try texas mustang parts.

I bought my weatherstripping from stangparts.com. It cost about $115 bucks but that is about normal. It fit perfectly and stopped my leak problems. Make sure to use some kind of adhesive to make the seal even better. I bought the one that actually goes on the glass, it was in bad shape.

The seal is easy to swap. My old one was so worn it came right off. I just used a weatherstrip adhesive from an auto parts store.
The new seal just pushes into place and I ran a bead of glue along the weatherstripping before I pushed it into place. I also repainted the sunroof frame at the same time. I figured kill to birds with one stone. Hope this helps.
