Rivernerd Posted April 20 Share Posted April 20 We just returned from a week on the Oregon Coast. During our return trip to Idaho, we encountered several miles of freshly sanded snow/slush as we drove across Tombstone Pass. It coated the back end of our Ollie with fine grit. We also found that sand-laden water had worked its way through the rear window and left a trail of grit from the bottom of the window downward across the belly band. When I asked Oliver Service how to reseal the rear window to prevent this from happening again, Jason Essary advised me to check if the weep holes were clogged. Sure enough, the weep holes had gotten packed with fine road sand, which apparently allowed the sand/water mix to get inside. Cleaning the weep holes out with a jet of water was the solution, not re-sealing the window. Lesson learned: If you find a leak around a window, the first thing to check is the weep holes! 4 7 Hull #1291 Central Idaho 2022 Elite II Tow Vehicle: 2019 Tundra Double Cab 4x4, 5.7L with tow package Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
