    also check the roof rails (cant remember the proper name),open the boot they un-clip from the rear to the front of the car,under the clip its rivited to the roof of the car,between the rivit there is a little 'foam' washer,this will deteriorate through time,had the same problem as you,done the aerial seal then foound this out
