Hello Mario,

I don't have a spotlight nor a horn on the roof. I've checked the running lights and those holes are sealed. I've had leaks at the top of the A pillars due to the windshield gasket leaking at those top corners. I've dumped lots of sealant down those "holes" and no leaks there after all the rain we had. I've always had a leak at the top of the windshields at that center windshield pillar. So I'm pretty sure that the leak is from the gasket at the top of the windshield...gasket doesn't look good up there!

I'm glad you found and fixed your leak!
