Hi.
So my NB import let in a lot of water via the driver side window.
I have removed roof seals and adjusted the rails they sit on which helped loads when tested with garden hose, however the edge of the window doesn't sit flush in the seal (quater light side). The water gets in right up in the corner. The window basically needs pushing in left to make it snug).
Trouble is I have loosened as many bolts as I could but it won't move. Can anyone tell me how to achieve this? A pic showing which bolts to loosen would be great.
Thanks in advance. I have pics to explain if needed.

I think people are struggling to understand the issue in detail. A quick pic with arrows pointing to the leak would be beneficial in you getting an answer.

As I understand it, the front edge of the window is not tight in the channel between the glass and the quarter light at the top?

Open your door, underneath the door at the rear is an adjustable bolt

Thanks for replying.
Here is a pic of where the water comes in and how the window sits in the trim currently.
I want to get the window to sit within the trim.

Thanks. So is it just one bolt I need to loosen and its the one closest to the back end of the door (closest to seat belt post?).
Or is there more to loosen?

As I recall it is the single bolt underneath the rear of the door, slacken it off and you should be able to move the window glass frame to solve your problem.
Let us know how you get on.
