Leaking A-Pillar? Possible cause.

Hello all,

I do have a sunroof, but I took down the headliner and found the culprit of my leaking A-Pillar. This would affect people with or without a sunroof as it was a shitty seam weld. Pics below

I removed my entire headliner to find this problem. It was leaking near the upper drivers side corner of the windshield and going down the A-Pillar. I thought it was a window seal so I brought it to the people that did my Windshield and they seen the mini break in the weld(as seen in the pic) and shot compress air to show that it was in fact coming from there and not the window seal. Again, no leaks since I put the sealant on the hole.

I had the same problem on mine. Sealed it up, good to go. I also had my drivers rear roof rack leaking. Glad I found both at the same time.
