Leak at front stone guard

We just purchased a 2001 limited 30''. just noticed after a heavy rain that water had pooled in the front window frame channel. The water did not get inside & appears to be coming through at the stone guard. The side the water came in is also missing part of the arm that holds the window up which I'm in the process of replacing. Any advice on where the leak may be coming from and how to fix it? Thank you!!

Might be the window seal , or the leak might be from the area where the stone guard is attached to the body itself . check all the screws and reseal the mounting . check and see if the screen is getting wet from the top . Mine leaked from the stone guard mounting .

Definitely check and reseal the rock guard hinge mounting track and rivets, as well as the window frame-to-skin areas....but I chased this issue for some time until I got to the conclusion that it was the flawed design of the rubber window seal itself. See link.

Someone just posted his solution. It seems his leak was at the window latch that went through the frame. The water pooled in the frame, got to the level of the latch and came in past the shaft.
