    You’ve just confirmed my belief, Tony, that if you have any kind of a leak, the ENTIRE rubber seal, both to bodywork and to screen, needs to be pulled back slightly, thoroughly DRIED and only then sealant injected right round the entire screen.

    I think that when previous attempts at repairs have failed, it is possibly because the point of observable water ingress is most likely NOT the point where water starts to get in.  Surface tension and gravity/air pressure, will drag water a long way from its initial entry point.  Therefore  if you’re attempting to repair a water leak to one of our Exsis screens, first dry under the rubber and then seal right round the edge of the ENTIRE screen, both under the rubber to body and the under the rubber to windscreen.
