lots of wind noise coming from roof of my 99

New with the car (99 slk230 kompressor) and finding little annoying things. At around 40 mph there's plenty of wind noise coming from the top of the roof where it meets the windshield. Currently my interior roof is missing the headliner (ordering replacement soon). Roof also doesn't go up on down electronically (i dont know why yet).

1.) would having no headliner could be why im hearing the wind noise?
2.) or there is a gap and the seals are worned out?

Thoughts?

Thanks. But at this point it is more of a adjustment and gap issue I think. I just don't know how to adjust it yet. Can you pin point me on how to adjust?

Id first sort out to get roof working electronically first then see if you have wind noise after etc
Roof not locking in to place maybe an issue .
