            it to0k me 2 tries til i got my leak fixed. first i just replaced those clear rubber boots and the clips, that didnt work. then i looked and the seal for the air blower cabin was shot too so i just ordered a new one and just to make sure i sealed it up with silicone. now im leak FREE! i know this thing by heart! if anyone needs help and are local come by and i will lend a hand. oh ya as far as the trunk leak its usually the tail light gasket or sometimes the weatherstripping around the truck. i replaced those and im 100% leak FREE! WOO HOO!

              So let me get this straight... since you already showed us where the leak is coming from , from the outside part.. we DON'T need to tear apart under the dash correct? Just find the piece from the outside and silicone that mofo up good?

                  Do not silicone...I tried telling my bf that it doesn't work and he put a ton of it on there, filled all the plug holes and did around the air cover (the smaller cowl) and it still fucking leaks pretty bad. Now getting all that off is going to be a pain in the ass, cause he didnt' listen to me.

                        Along with the cowl plugs I used Honda Bond sealant on my teg, we've had several storms come in since September and no leaks...I'm good for another 14 years! I used the sealant around the cowl plugs and the areas which were shown earlier to have leakage.

                            well i'm on the same boat "literally". i got in my car, throwing my backpack on the passenger floor, then realised i needed to get something from it. pulled the backpack up and onto my lap.........EWWWWW. freaking thing was soaked, and well there's like dirt or oil or whatever residue shiet too. previous owner looked as if he left all the windows open throughout the year. so ima have to order new cowl plugs and stuff, and the lil weather stripping thing too, cuz the guys that put on a new windshield said it was too F'd up and they didn't have one for it. =( i also noticed that my cowl doesn't have any of the black plugs on the outside, so u can see thru all the lil holes.......FREAKING A HOLE. and to add to that, the NEW weather stripping on the top passenger side of the windshield wasn't all that great, so i could see the leak coming down like where the visor is. so i also have to go and get that part redone. not a happy camper =( luckily the windshield place will repair for free.

                              So I could see into the cowl and see where the water was dripping from

                                There is nothing wrong with using silicone, but there is a specific type you have to use that bonds well to metal and plastic surfaces and is MEANT to prevent water leaks. What do you think honda-bond is, a high temp non corroding silicone meant to bond to plastic and metal and prevent leaks. So there is nothing wrong with silicone. Not all silicones will prevent leaks, plus you have to properly prep the area so it will bond well, just slabbing the stuff on thinking it'll fix the leak is not correct. There is even a type of silicone that if properly cured can but stuck under water and will not leak.

                                Please research information before saying don't use this or don't use that. If used properly and the correct type silicone WILL do the job and last for a long time or even longer then the life of the car. I've poured countless buckets of water OVER my siliconed pieces and looked at it.

                                Plus Like i said, it wasn't leaking from the cowl pieces, it was leaking from the window bracket and the white cowl bracket, totally different from the rubbers people are replacing.
