My driveway is sloped so the van is not level when parked. I try to reverse its direction once a week so it doesnít stay pointed in one of direction too long for what thatís worth. We first noticed the water leak while driving through heavy rain, so not just when parked at an angle.
The van records indicate installation of the add-on clearance lights to the roof at some point after the original sale.
I am also wondering about the triple RT skylights but not finding much info on how to check and reseal them.
Water leaks can be extremely hard to find as they can come from almost anywhere above where the water collect. Upper 3 windows, windshield, added roof to body seam above the doors would be prime suspects.
It might pay to just take it to a body shop that can do a "smoke test" where they pressurize the van with cloudy air and watch to see where it comes out. A 190 will probably have several places that won't the leak also, though, so expect that. Rear side window on the driver side almost never close tight, at least on the earlier 190s.
