Darn I thought I fixed my leak

These leaks are hard to find. This one is over the passenger seat, I think it either coming from the antenna or the complicated area at the front end of my awning/trim piece over the window.

Bummer, double check the end cap where it ties into that area where your Eterabond ends also.

The area I circled is where it ends. I was trying to not see the tape from the ground. I am really hoping its the antenna.

We had a leak, with the water ending up on the passenger seat. Turned out to be the top of the black windshield rubber (see red circle in photo) and easily fixed with clear aquarium sealer.

Good luck!

When I thought I knew where my leak was coming from, I covered the area with plastic & tape and then poured a few buckets of water over it to test the theory. A crude way for sure, but it worked and that's what counts.

Don't forget the marker lights at the front of the end cap as they're known to leak. The curved strip on the side of the end cap leaked on my 92 LY too.

I think that curve strip above my side window is leaking I wonder what clear sealant I need for that ?

I removed the 1" connecting strip,and cleaned off all the old caulking. Mine had a gap between the roof cap and the side panel so you can reseal that area quite well. At the same time I also left enough caulk that could squeeze out past the metal and wiped it clean leaving a fine bead of caulk next to the metal strip.
i did both sides the same way and haven't had a problem since. That metal strip comes off easily.I used Dicor white caulk, when you wipe it tight back to the metal I found the white looks fine. I don't know if it comes in clear.

Yep, I'd remove the entire strip (you may need to use a spatula to remove it) and calk under it. I did the same but used 3/4" butyl tape under the strip and a gray acrylic calk along the edges. No leak for over a year.

I would never use silicone calk on the exterior surfaces. The silicone will separate over time and the leak will return. Silicone is much harder to remove cleanly in the future as well since it leave a residue that's tough to remove. Many conventional sealants will not adhere to silicone so future applications of non-silicone products may fail in a very short time.
