Are you saying the headlining is getting wet at the rear drivers side? Just to double check.

Definitely the drivers side, and the rear screen wash works correctly? (Fed from the left looking at the rear)

Re: Fiat with fixed roof black strip removal

I think,,,, it just pulls out try to remove it after the cars been in the sun I've not been able to find any info on how it's fixed but on all my other non Fiats it's been a push in fit, like when the monkeys at the zoo pulled off the car in fronts strips and lots of other bits!
