We had a pretty good rain storm today and I went out to check the window. The inside of the window is dry. The water is leaking out of the screws on the bottom of the frame. It is leaking out of three of six screws. Had to go to the car show today so I put a towels down on the counter and maybe I can take the window out tomorrow if it isn't raining.

Maybe after traveling the screws loosen up. Ours is a 2014 and I have not seen any leaks. It is still covered up and looks like it will be for a while now, because we got 5" of snow and still snowing here in central New York.

Was gett'n around the bottom row of screws...pull the inner frame, and you'll see how the window is installed.... Where the inner meets the outerr, put a small bead of anti-leak (silicone) and reassemble frame to window

So, you only had to take the inside frame off ,right. Or do I need to wait for a warm day and take the whole window out?

Just take the inner frame off...then you'll see where to add silicone...outer frame edge is sharp, no lip, so where the inner butts up against the outer is where the water gets in

I had to take the whole windy out and reveal it. There was water getting in from the outside. I remove the inner frame, then popped the window out. All of the foam sealant was off and wasn't completing the seal from the outside. I removed all of the old sealer and put butyl tape all around. Popped it back in and adjusted then tightened it down. We will check for leaks tonight with a flashlight after dark. Then tomorrow,with a hose.

You can see where the corner seal from the factory failed. That's where the water got in.Click image for larger version
