2000 slk 320 R170 roof alignment problem

On my R170 SLK I have a problem with the roof alignment. The front of the roof is perfectly aligned, but on the back side of the roof it missaligns for about 3 mm to the right. This results in a lot of wind noise when I drive over 110 km/h and leakage on the left side of the car. The leakage is dependent on rain intensty and speed, lower speeds give more leakage. I greased all seals with silicone grease (specialy for rubber seals) but that doesn't fix the leakage.

Any suggestions to realign the roof?

only if u update your profile, like this please:

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. And it only takes about 30 seconds to do!
