Default Ttop leaking

ive been struggling to figure out my issue of my ttop leaking between the trim piece on the actual ttop and the pillar, if I leave it out on a regular rain for more than 5 minutes the seat is soaked! I've noticed that the weather strip has a gap at the top where the pillar meets the strip. Is there a way to seat it back into place????

never owned a t top but have seen where fellas have used a sealant/adhesive between the rubber seal and the car body. hopefully gorn will remember what it is, see this and respond.

Sorry I have no personal experience with leaking T-tops, I was lucky, when I bought my 96 with the blown motor the lady I got it from said she had spent $1200 getting the tops resealed less then a year before I bought the car and my 2000 has not leaked yet. Course it will tomorrow now that I said that.

There was a sticky at one point but if the seal is shot or the top is warped I don't thing there are quick fix other then replacing the parts that are causing the issue. I think seals collapse after a while.
