Pluriel roof has small cracks are appearing

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).

Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi, my first post so bear with me if not correctly formatted.
I’ve just purchased a Cote d Azure 06 Pluriel for my wife, fantastic little car but I’ve noticed where the roof folds back small cracks are appearing. No leaks yet internally but I’m concerned that if left it may result in water ingress. Is there a treatment I can apply to seal them?, can you buy the roof cassette?, is it cheaper to recover?
Thanks in advance

Hi,
I'm going to use Captain Tolley’s Creeping Crack Cure (leak/crack sealer) 60ml from Amazon
I'll let you know if it works in a week or so.

It worked perfectly for sealing the hairline cracks on the canvas roof and sealing almost every crack (up to 1mm) within inaccessible regions of the the rear window seal.

Great work! Thank you for the update. I am sure it will help other pluriel owners with their leaking roof.
