Scamp front bathroom window mod.

The window leaked. I opened it as much as possible and could see the rubber seal was messed up. Nothing could be done with the window in place so I removed it.

The window does disassemble without much effort and it's much easier to deal with the seal. The window tilts back. The extrusion is a "U" shape. Water sits in it. Any problem with the seal and the water will find a way past it.

I was surprised that there weren't any drain holes to the outside. Letting the channel drain reduces the work of the seal at keeping water out. I drilled 3 drain holes. I cut the damaged part of the seal off and put that side at the top with some replacement material. I used double backed tape to hold the seal in.

Two days of heavy rain and all is dry. dry rain

I ended up having to drill a few holes in the frame of my side bath window frame as well for the same reason... wonder why they dont put weep holes on the small windows.
