Leak at seam?

I have a leak below the corner of my rear non opening window (76 boler). It seems to be right behind or near the middle seam so im assuming that it's a rivet. How do i fix this? I'm thinking (hoping) that i just need to replace the rivet that's there and add some caulking to it. Thanks

Sometimes the rubber gasket shrinks a bit over the years and you get a small gap. It might be what you call the middle seam. If that is the case, you can replace the window gasket. I've been able to simply fill the gap with some flexible putty to stop the small leak.

Would the gap be easily visible with the eye? The water is near seam (middle horizontal belly band where top/bottom meet) so i assumed it was coming from there. Around the window and window seams is dry. Could it be entering at window and running down? i thought more likely to be rivet. I guess i'll have to test spray it
