    This is a 2013 Cascadia, this is the overhead storage bin for the driver and I’m trying to figure out to take it out if it’s even possible.

    I have a leak on the cab market light and I want to seal it from behind or find the issue if it’s not the cab marker light.


    I’ve upgraded the light and added silicon. Still leaks. I don’t want to have the windshield done if that’s not the issue.

    My Classic leaks. I think it’s the top of windshield gasket. I’ve replaced the gasket. I plan on putting silicone on the outside, across the top, and around the corner a bit, under the rubber seal. I’ve looked for leaks inside above it, done see any. The windshield Guys claim it’s not needed. I had the same problem on a WS. The Dealer used black Trailer roof type sealer across the top, on a new gasket. Never leaked again. That stuffs thick and messy. I think the clear sticky silicone will work, using the cone adapter, getting it in under the seal. Can’t hurt to try. Before taking everything apart.

    I would agree about the windshield gasket, but the issue is I run my finger on that gasket and it’s dry. That’s what got me confused.

    A buddy suggested liquid silicone that finds its way into cracks as you poor it on and drys. Going to see about that as well.

    My guess would be to take it out, it probably snaps in place or there is screws holding it up underneath the headliner.

    I tried, it looks like it’s glued on.

    Looks like some buttons on the bottom. Might be screws under them. Side pillar covers and sun visors probably come off, more screws under there. I’m headed to my Truck tomorrow. We have a Cascadia up there for parts. I’ll look at it. Already did once. Thought about putting the center door and the bunk cabinet on my Classic. Couldn’t tell how it comes off though without breaking it. Everytime I take something off the interior I break it. Lol. I’ll look again.

    Looked into it, its not for that, but I’ll double check tomorrow again. This slot isn’t like the others i can remove. The others have bolts on them from the inside. This one looks like its part of the whole overhead bin. No seams and did look like it was glued on.

    Water may be coming in from a spot weld or rivet in the sheet metal. Minuscule cracks develop around them on the roof from the constant vibration caused by the wind.
