Sealing Front Boler window????

I had new windows installed in the front and back of our Boler last year, with new seals. On the drive home the front window blew in a little (they upgraded from plexiglass to a more flexible material, bad idea). I have since fit the window back in, and it looks sealed, but we have had some storms come through and the front window is leaking. Any ideas on how to fix this. The seal is new and shows no sign of damage.

Chris, if the window flexes, you're going to have a devil of a time getting it to seal. If it were me, and it's not, I'd replace the plexi with the stock thickness and strength. You can obviously reuse the gasket material. In the long run, this may be the best and cheapest solution. In the future, replacing the floor is going to be a PITA because water intrusion is not a good thing!

I agree with Donna. It's going to be a PITA to get it to seal if it's flexes.

Thanks for the reponses, not what I wanted to hear, but what I feared.
