    Use the black weatherstrip adhesive (3m) not the yellow. Look at the site Arizona 02 reccomended, and consider replacing your sunroof drains while you have access to them.

    At least check to make sure the drains are clear, if not you can try blowing compressed air up through the bottom. Or replace them with tubing and fittings from the plumbing dept of a hardware store. Sunroof can be a can 'o worms, good luck, and please post how it goes. Take some pictures of each step if possible.

    Thanks to both Arizona02 and 1971agave. The website is great, I can't believe I didn't know that it existed. By the way, 1971agave, my 73' tii is agave also. I'll take some pics as I make this repair this weekend and post to you all. My car is not apart, so I dont't think I'll be replacing the drain lines. I will clean them out with compressed air. Good idea. Thanks, again.sfy2905

    I did mine using that website, patience and common sense as my guides.
    I replaced EVERYTHING, including the cables.
    I polished all the bits, replaced the cables and felts.
    Smooth operation now, nice and straight and still no leaks!!
    The hardest part is mounting the final interior trim panel.
    Feel free to ping me if you have questions about the steps.
