    Sometimes you can stop the leaking without replacing the weathstrips. Remove the top and thoroughly clean all of the weather stripping. Treat it with a rubber dressing. Clean and wax all of the body areas where the weatherstripping meets it. With everything clean and smooth, replace the top. This will stop most leaks unless the weatherstrip is physically damaged.
