    Nope. I’ve had no time. Best of luck man. If I. When life allows me the time I’ll make a post but I can’t help you with that at this moment.

    No problem. I’m going to focus on those rubber seals, duct taped area, and weld seal that you mentioned and see how it goes.

    I’m 90% certain it’s at the top rear of the weather rails and it’s the actual body seams underneath them.

    Yeah I’m sure you’re right on. I saw a few videos that had bad seals and they used Permatex RTV sealant and that fixes the issue

    JB Weld makes an epoxy putty stick called Water Weld that is very good at plugging leaks and can actually be sanded and shaped when dry.

    So I’m happy to report that the Fiesta stayed dried this whole week and didn’t have any of the previous internal water leaks issues from the hatch. The areas I fixed where the body seams right below the weather rails. Thanks to HAHAFIST . I used JB Weld RTV Silicone over the seam. Additionally, I redid the duct tape that was covering the hole right under the tail lights. The old duct tape was barely sticking and was exposing the hole. I used gorilla duck tape to cover the hole.

    Rad dude! Can you post photos of the seam welds you treated and indicate how? My leaks are much more minimal but I think I still have some.

    Ok I’ll try and take pictures tomorrow. I’ll see how the pictures look with the rain.

    Was in a parking lot with probably a dozen different vehicles of all brands and ages. I noticed there were a lot of Fords, some older, with fog on the inside of the windshields.

    For the second time I've dropped mine off with the dealer hoping they can find and resolve the leak(s).

    The first visit they said it was the windshield. There were water marks at the mount points for each of the visors so that makes sense.

    I'll letcha know what they say this time.

    The leak(s) seem to be from somewhere up front. Sitting in the sunshine after sitting through a rain, the front windshield fogs up, and gets progressively lighter as you move toward the rear of the vehicle. Rarely does the fog reach the rear door windows. The metal behind the glove box had a fair amount of surface rust.
