It's not so much the auto cancellation of the indicators as that I can't see the lights on the dash. Being 6'2" the steering wheel covers them.

Nothing major but an annoying occasional drizzle down the inside of the passenger side window when washing or as today when the rain is driving down.

I can't see anything obviously wrong with the seal between the top of the window and the roof rubber and therefore haven't got a clue what to do!?
