Re: Help with water leak 02 Libby
I had an Explorer to that - although nowhere near as bad was what you have. yikes. I think I only had about a 6" strip like that. Mine started to this due to a shoddy job on a windshield replacement. It eventually started leaking into the interior; i.e., water would drip down on the center console area when it rained).
A body shop could have repaired it - they would take out the windshield, then grind/sand away all the rust, then rebuild everything with putty / epoxy. I opted to sell the Explorer. For a Liberty!
