Pete's got water coming through the side seals at the front

Pete is a real MX5/Roadster enthusiast and as such owns all version of the car. He's also incredibly unlucky with his cars which suffer from just about every ailment we have come across (and a few we haven't - yet). With your help we can keep all his cars on the road and the smile on his face so please come in and see if you can help.

Pete's got a roof leak. It's been going on a while but he's been busy with the other problems.

Water is coming in at the front and centre side seals on the soft-top. Any ideas?

Pete says he's got a recent receipt for the hood - it's only a few months old. He says it seems to fit nicely...

Just checked with Pete. It was the soft-top catch caps missing...

Good work everyone....
