Subject: Re: Leaky 9-5 roof


David: Don't know about spiders. I had a similar problem recently with my 9-5 after my dealer's body shop guys refinished hail damage on the roof. As I drove away in a driving rain, the passenger-side front window pillar began leaking (gushing!) water inside at the seam. Within two minutes, I had water running down the upholstered pillar and steadily dripping onto the floor. A return to the dealer revealed the body shop had cracked the seal around the front windshield. They fixed the crack in the seal, as well as another small one above the rearview mirror that had leaked, and the problems are solved. Now if they could only squelch that gremlin in my rattling sunroof :-) --TR David Page <dpagenopsamtech.com> wrote in message news:dpage-0705001821450001nopsamk.roc.servtech.com... > I love my SAAB 9.5... it has just one irritating problem.
