Water Ingress

Post by 100leelee »

Hi
Have an annoying water leak on the van.
The leak is visible around the drivers side courtesy light switch.
Removed the switch and the leak seems actually to be from just behind the dash lower bolt.
Remove the bolt, no water from inside the cavity.
Suspect the screen seal, though can’t see the tracking down to this area.
Van was refurbished, so pretty sure it’s not the high top sealant.
Has anyone had a leak in this area?
Cheers
