Axis Windshield leak

Our Axis may have a small leak in the upper corner on passenger side.

Can the black rubber molding that surrounds the windshield be gently pulled out and then be pressed back in? We do not want to totally remove this but to pull the upper passenger corner out and add some flowable silicon about 8 inches across the top.

My concern is putting the rubber piece back in. Is the rubber pressed into a channel?

Thank you for any tips you may have.

I did a similar repair on my Vegas. During a heavy rain, I would get a water on passenger side dash. I pulled the gasket off, used flowable silicone for windshields and leak is now gone. Gasket snaps in place.

You can use a silicone windshield sealer, likeGorilla Multipurpose. When I had that problem with our Vegas after replacing the windshield, the guy used DAP Dynaflex black. Yes, you should be able to pull the molding and squirt that sealer in.

Thank you!!!

I appreciate the hand holding as I would much rather try to fix it than take it in.

As an FYI the urethane seal on the inside of the coach is ripply vs being smooth right where the suspected leak is. The rest of the windshield is very smooth. I suspect that 6 or so inch section has tiny holes.

Just coming back to say that the rubber molding was just as explained to me.
It has a channel sort of like a zip lock bag.

Thank you again for the helpful info.
