good point, make sure you go someware that you know the guy doing it has LOTS of experiance, a friend of mine needed it done with his and we aske dthe guy at work that does glass and he said there was no way he could take it out without breaking it. we both thought that to be BS so we went to a friend of mine that has 15+ years experiance and he said he could do it without breaking it and only hacks cant do it without breakage
Heck, I didn't break mine, And it was my first time!
Wait a minute, didn't you post a vid of yourself smashing your windshield with a bat?

I had the exact same issue as you, except my leak was on the driver'* side. I did what Peter suggested, had the glass removed and left it out for 4-5 days in my garage. I did the necessary repairs and then had the glass company come back out to reinstall it. It doesn't leak a drip now.

Here'* what I had to work with when they removed the glass:

Yours likely looks the same underneath. I got carried away with the repair and didn't take any pics, but what I did was wire wheel the rusted areas. That got rid of the debris and rust. Then I used a pneumatic grinder to grind down to bare metal. After that I masked off all potential overspray areas and put 4-5 coats of flat black Rust O Leam aresol paint on the affected areas. 2 days later the glass guys came back and reinstalled the windshield. Like I said, I haven't had any issues.

If you rig it with caulk or filler at the trim, you're only delaying when that leak will resurface.

This is going to Detailing and Appearance...
