SHR quarter window louvers leaking
 
So today on a long, long road trip, I noticed that both of my louvers are leaking slightly. The louvers have been on for probably close to a year now, but since I hardly ever drive the car, I hadn't noticed. I could hear air coming in, and after washing the car I found water.

Is there a simple way to stop the leaks? I don't think there is any way I could remove the louvers without destroying them, the cutter would slice right through them.

I'm thinking some adhesive in a syringe of some sort, that I can use to get in the gaps without getting it all over the paint?

If they are really leaking, the bond probably isn't great, so you could probably push them out if you have someone to catch them, then you could just clean them up and do a fresh seal.
I had a body shop install mine since I had other things being painted and installed, the first time they did a bad job, (I don't think they used the primer), they removed and resealed them no problem. If you're hesitant, you could have glass guys do it for you.

I personally would push them out like mentioned above and re seal them.

I'll re-gather supplies and try it.
