Title: Sealing arrangement for a motor vehicle sliding roof, sliding and lifting roof, spoiler roof, louvered roof or the like

Abstract: Sealing arrangement for a gap (3) between adjacent cover edges of two adjustable cover elements (1, 2) which lie behind one another in their closed position, i.e., cover elements of a motor vehicle sliding roof, sliding and lifting roof, spoiler roof, louvered roof or the like. In the gap area, at least one sealing element (6, 7) which is elastic at least in areas is attached to each of the two cover elements (1, 2) or to the frame parts (13 and 14) which are associated therewith. The two sealing elements (6, 7) are arranged symmetrically along the cover edges of the two cover elements (1, 2), and the two sealing elements overlap one another with sealing lips (11, 12) to form a seal in the gap area in the closed position of the cover elements (1, 2). The elasticity and shape of the sealing elements are such that the sealing elements allow mutual tilting and/or vertical adjustment movements of the two cover elements.
