    Weve had our van since feb & it has a dealer warranty

    Last month we noticed a leak in wales in treaturus conditions (apologies for the grammar Google doesn't recognize my attempt)
    We found a leak in one rear window & it was on the side that was taking a beating so I pulled out the tools & tightened up the screws which slowed the leak down to almost nothing.

    I thought id give it some time to allow for any seepage that had already started to follow through.

    Well weve noticed no leaks since but its in the back of my mind now.......

    The question is Do i remove the offending window & re-seal it & is it worthwhile doing all the windows.

    What do you think ???????????

    anything that has leaked once, will leak again unless it is properly resealed, and sadly thats a fact. you may not see it till the wallboard ad insulation has become wet because you actually saw it leaking, you have hopefully caught it in time.

    If it has a warranty, have it fixed by the dealer

    i agree with this,,,get the dealer to do it,,then if anything goes wrong its down to them to repair,,,if you do it yourself and damage anything then you have to pay to fix it....

    It's commendable that you want to do it yourself, but defo don't touch it as it'll prob invalidate any future warranty and no one wants that to happen!!! :Eek!:

    Take it back to the dealer and chat to them. My bet is that they'll want to have it looked at for fear of huge future repair bills, or in the very least support you in conducting the repairs :BigGrin:

    Good luck and keep us posted please :thumb:
