#2 of 157 Air Leak between top and windshield
Jan 10, 2006 (10:51 pm)
2001 LXI, assuming the weatherstripping must be going bad.
Where is best place (hoping other than dealership) to
find this part? Is it a do it yourself job?

I have a 98 sebring JXi convertible and had the roof restitched at the same time I mentioned to the guy that air came through, he adjusted the hooks that are on the roof that hook into the car. You need an allen or star wrench to tighten these up and that will fix the problem!
I hope this helps you!
FYI - I also had a problem with my car almost stalling/losing power for anywhere from 1 min to 5 mins. I had the car to a Chrysler dealership but they couldn't figure out what was wrong ... finally a mechanic friend of mine found the problem ... it was the catalytic converter!
Also the # 1 cylinder has gone bad twice ... it misfires and the car runs like crap!
I am currently having a problem with my oil light flickering? I replaced the oil pressure switch but it is still doing it. It happens when stopped at a light if I give a little gas the light goes out ... any suggestions?
Thank You ...

I'm not a mechanic, but I suspect the flickering oil light means you need a new oil pump. I say this from experience with other vehicles. The symptoms you describe are exactly what happened with our Ford E150 van just before I had to have the oil pump replaced. Best of luck.
#5 of 157 air leak under convertible roof?
Jan 11, 2006 (7:30 pm)
I'm getting an air leak/whistle from the front center
of the top when closed. Seems worse in the cold and
when driving into wind.
Anyone recommend a weatherstrip material to adhere to the
bottom of the convertible top?
Even if the weatherstripping on the windshield part is
deteriating -- it looks to be one huge piece and surely
must cost a fortune.
Padding/filling the gap from the convertible top perspective seems the right choice.
#7 of 157 Convertible boots?

What exactly is the purpose of boots on convertibles? Is it just for appearance?

My understanding is that it's pretty much for appearance. Works, doesn't it. It will also keep soot and other dirt out of the well.
#9 of 157 winter in New England
Apr 21, 2006 (11:34 pm)
I have a 2002 Sebring Conv GTC. I am moving from Las Vegas to the New England states. How does the conv. top hold up to the winters there, (i.e snow on top). What other advise could someone provide to winterize my car for the weather there? Someone has told me I would need a heater for the engine, is that true?
#10 of 157 rear window problem
Jun 10, 2006 (11:57 am)
Hello - I live in England and have just bought a 2nd hand '04 Sebring convertible which is quite unusual over here. We love the car but have noticed that the roof is beginning to separate from the rear window glass which is a bit worrying as it rains a lot here in Devon. Can anyone tell me is this is something I can fix myself with some kind of generic glue or something or is it more complicated than that. Otherwise we love the car, having just sold our '93 Lebaron to get this.
