Hello chaps, sorry to hijack, but these felt seals, do they go on the sunroof panel itself or on the body? On mine they are on the body, but a sunroof specialist who recently got the roof working again for me thought they should be on the sunroof panel. It`s a real tight fit at the back and doesn`t quite sit properly, sags in one corner, he thought it was because of the seals.

I'm fairly sure ours were stuck to the body, under the edge of the sunroof opening in the roof, (removed them a few months ago, to prep the body for painting), but the sunroof had been 'molested by previous owner.
However, the Factory fitted Sunroof on my 1990 Audi 100, which is almost identical to the one on the Beetle, has the seals on the sunroof sliding part, sorry if that doesn't help much.
