I just bought a MB 280TE from 1980. It's a lovely car but I have one
problem....the sunroof is not waterproof. When it rains heavily water comes
in to the car throug the small gaps around the sunroof.
Does anyone know how to fix it??
If the sunroof is factory installed, you should check the hoses which let
the water flow away from the sunroof frame to the bottom of the car. They
may be blocked due to dirt or leafs from the trees. These hoses should
always be free and clear, because the water can cause rust. If the
sunroof has rubber seals, you should clean them carefully, look for
damages and apply sparesely some vaseline to keep them flexible.

Replace the seals around the sunroof... also see if you can clean the drain
hole up there. with a can of air... not air hose that you might risk blowing
the tube out of the plug... and then the water will get inside the car.
