Water Ingress-help

So my 110 always has a puddle on the driver's floor after every rain. I always see a drip from headliner at the windscreen. Pulled it down a bit expected to see a puddle....nope. Just a weep of water that forms a drip from the seam in the pics. Everything else was bone dry. I see that the seam goes all the way through to the front under the rain gutter at the top of the windscreen. For the moment I have put silicone over this area on the outside. i didn't want to do this on the inside yet just in case I was covering up a bigger problem. Any suggestions or warnings about my plan?

Thanks
Chris

LR Defender Water Ingress Manual

Thirty-five pages attesting to the engineering genius that is, the Defender.

Check the following:
  • A post.
  • Screen hinges.
  • Kinked door seal.
  • Roof seams.
  • Front scroll of roof.

I've had them all. Still have some.

How do the carpeted interiors of SWs not smell like a wet dog over time?

Even the early LR3s leak water. I needed to perform the basic mods to stop the leaks in my 06'. Amazing that 7 years of dealer service didn't perform them all prior to my purchase a few months ago.
