Which cable?

You can replace both with out buying a new top
see my how to.

just doing the rear takes more time and is more intense.

The sides are easy.

Mine currently doesn't drip unless the wind hits it just right. It didn't drip at all when I first installed it.

They certainly can be leak-free in the sense of not dripping on you when you're driving. If you go through a high-pressure carwash, or park the car outside in a big rainstorm for a couple days, you'll probably find a bit of water inside no matter what, though. Convertible tops are made to shed water, not to be totally watertight.
