A Pillar Leak

2002 TL Type S... DCar has been sitting 1.5 years before I got it from my brother in another state so both winter and summer got to it..

I noticed the corner top driver side on the windshield had pine tree trash under the rubber seal i clean it out but when whenever it rains I get a dripping leak right in the crease where the A pillar and roof liner meet.

I used E 6000 under the rubber where I clean out the trash and I used a long wire in both sunroof drains.. I don't if anyone every experience this and can tell me with adhesive to get to seal it or where to even seal....

I have enough other issues to fix that I'm scraping dollars to fix.

Leak is right in that area where the curved part of liner is.

Well in the event you see this message - did you make any progress on this issue? I've inherited a 2003 3.2TL that simply floods in the rain.

Pillar Leak

Well.. I think I solved it but not 100% sure... I peeled the rubber from around the top corners to about 3 inches down the sides of my windshield,clean out the dirt and crud from tree leaves and put RTV clear windshield silicone in it .. Haven't seen any water marks or drippage since summer.

But now I got moisture coming in somewhere and I think I gotta look into the rear windshield seals now. Car was sitting 2 years before I bought it so who can tell with winter,heat for those time plus dirt might have done.

Anyway try the RTV and water test it.

Yeah, I've got a leak in the top passenger-side corner of my front windshield. Used to be all across the top of the front windshield, but some silicone caulk fixed that up.
Not sure what area you're in, but if it gets hot in your summers and you park outside, you might have your caulk just melt right off and pour down. Happened to me with outdoor-rated caulk - I'll be re-doing it later with some seriously high-temperature-resistant stuff.
