Picture?
More details?
Is the water leaking inside?

Somebody replaced a windshield and did not do a good job?

driver side, under windshield cowling, couple of inches down from windshield..directly behind hood bracket..there is a weld...small, crack there..allows water to come in through the floor, where there are two layers of metal, just a little ways in from the door, running up the firewall., water comes in through that seam..Just closed the crack up with a product called Instant Gutter Seal, highly recommended. See if that's all the problem or if the fender needs to come off for further exploration.

..here's some pics..not great..area/crack covered with sealant...upper Right
other pic is the floor where water runs in from leak above....directly left of my hand is the seam,two separate overlapped layers of metal..., dark stuff is carpet pad stuck along seam, perhaps from earlier/prior owner attempt to fix or factory seam sealer?
