Go to a parts store and get some flowable clear silicone.
It comes in small tubes. It is made for sealing windshield and other leaks.
I have used it successfully on 2 different cars.

You will need to clean off the caulk you put on so it can get to the original seal/glass/trim. Apply it on the outside, on top of the glass/seal/trim at the leak so it can flow down into the leaking area.

If the leak/hole is big enough, it may flow through to the inside of the glass. If so, some masking tape will make a good dam to keep it contained. Don't be shy about putting it on. Put it on, let it flow in, add some more, let it flow in, add some more.

I smoothed the outside top edge off with a finger and wiped the excess off with a paper towel.

Let it cure per the instructions on the package. Any excess on the inside can be trimmed with a razor blade later.

Hopefully it will seal your leak. Good Luck!

We used to have leaks on our 1989 Encounter. Sealing it on the outside on the upper edge of the trim solved the problem. I tried different sealers and found that automotive window adhesive was the only one that worked for more than a few years. The black glass urethane stands up against mother nature the best. Be careful not to keep it only where desired, the stuff does not clean off hands. I got mine from an auto body shop, $15. Any left over in the tube will not keep.
