    How did you apply the captain tolleys from below?

    Also, what else did you break.... Clips from the grab handles by chance? Utterly terrible design.
    Thanks! It took about a 3-4 days of applying 2/3 layers per day. Then I left it about 48 hours before testing it. Despite the lack of rain i have washed the car and have seen no signs if ingress. I know others have reported water coming in after a few months so if this is something i have to do a couple of times a year I’m more than happy to do compared to having to replace the entire roof assembly!!

    I bought these
    Shintop 5ml Syringe with 18G 1.5'' Blunt Tip Needles for Experiments, Industrial Use (10 Pack): Amazon.co.uk: Kitchen & Home

    put about 2-3mm of the Captains Tolley into the syringe and then applied from below; i was quite liberal and applied it where the sealant drew itself in

    i damaged the covers more than the clips but yes what a terrible design! The grab handle clip assembly is completely over engineered!!

    Good luck! Give me a shout if you need any further help

    Rhyso, thanks for that, I was looking at similar stuff on amazon today as it happens!

    I'll get some ordered. I've got a couple of days off coming up, so will go for it then, along with fitting and coding the OEM towbar I bought for a bargain price from eBay a while back! Watch the weather turn for the worse now I've said that!

    I've previously repaired it from above and it lasted about 6 months, I'm hoping for a bit more longevity from below as it will get everywhere it needs to, in theory!

    Will report back once I've had a go at the repair.

    No problem

    i tried repairing from above but had zero success. What i did was alternate each application between above and below. So day one apply from below; day two apply from above etc

    Fingers crossed the weather holds out for you! Good luck!!
