Grease for minor leaks

Postby Kirisute » Wed Aug 05, 2015 7:01 pm

Had a very minor leak at the joint directly above the window joint on the passengers side. Looks like there is a bit of a gap in the seal joint there.
Following advice on here I searched for silicone grease but couldn't find anything...
In a fit of inspiration I recalled by trusty air gun kit and the grease within it!

It's a very thick grease designed to be safe for o rings etc and as such is perfect for this job.
I forced some into the hole, and spread a little along the inner joint.
I've been leak free since! Through all the downpours recently and through a couple of hosepipe car washes!
The grease is thick enough to keep its shape during opening/ closing etc and doesn't run/ melt in heat either.

So if you're stuck for a bit of grease I'd highly reccomend this!
