Window leaking at glazing

I believe that my window is leaking at what I would call the glazing on an old home window. What do you all recommend for this?

Just to clarify: It is not leaking at the shell, but rather the water gathers at the bottom of the window as the drops move down and then it slowly seeps in.

Thank you for any guidance! Just got my 1972 Argosy 20 and still learning

It sounds like a place I would try to seal with Captain Tolleys

X2 on Captain Tolleys Creeping Crack Cure. Sounds like to check the seal on the outside. May have to clean the outside and squirt Tolleys between the gasket and glass. Good luck

Ditto! Unless the existing seal is badly cracked, but instead still has life in it, the captain will not do you wrong. I just sealed the door window with it. Worked like a charm.

I believe the real fix is taking the window completely apart and essentially rebuilding it. Lots of info on here about methods to do that. Safe to assume all your windows will need this, sorry.

When my round windows leaked Airstream Service trimmed the sealant back to the edge of the glass, cleaned the glass and edge with denatured alcohol, and put a new bead around all the aluminum edging over the glass.
then leak checked it with their rain simulator. It has held for a number of years now (maybe 10 years or so).

Thanks guskmg

Interesting. I like that as it seems clean and neat. Do you by chance remember what type of sealant they used? Seems like folks stay away from too much silicone...

The Acryl-R holds its color nicely. Silkaflex is a bit easier to run a bead but some of the colors do not hold quite so well. Avoid silicone sealants as its modulus of elasticity is low and tends to crack prematurely when experiencing constant vibration. It is great around the house (which is static) as it is easier to apply.
