2016 38Q forward window leaks

The driver side and passenger side front seat side windows are manifesting water puddles at the base after hard rains. In both cases it seems to be originating around the window frames and seals. I've used a clear windshield sealant around the external frame flanges where it abuts the skin of the rig and reduced the leakage by about 60-70%, but it still persists. In addition I've tightened all the attaching screws around the internal frame flanges.

There is some shrinkage and retraction of the very small rubber seal (window to frame seal) and have attempted to push it back into the gap. I can not nail down the exact location of the leak though on either window

Anyone had any experience successfully eliminating leakage around these windows and frames?

Thanks

Joe

Found main culprit is Sirius XM antenna penetration through the roof. Slammed it with Manus Bond- still leaks.

Passenger side window a separate issue but may have that one slowed down
