Leaking Slide Motors

I have a 2018 Raptor and one of the continuing problems I haven't solved is the leaking slide motors. I have cleaned the roof several times and installed Permabond tape over affected roof areas. Should I replace the motors will they give me problems when they run out of oil? Is there a way to add oil?

Perhaps you meant the gear reduction box is leaking? Are all bolts tight? Yes when it runs out of oil it will fail shortly thereafter.

Well I went ahead and bought a new slide motor and gear set as a spare and low and behold the new set up actually has a little catch pan built in under the gear box. I guess instead of using better seals we'll just catch any oil that leaks. When my wife looked at it she asked the obvious question what happens when the little pan fills up?
