I think I have the same problem,
The passenger side is mint, look brand new, the drivers side unfortunately has been going on for a while. How did you seal that front seam above the headlights? Did you have to pull the dash? What type of sealer did you use.

It was all external. Removed what I could of the old sealer and replaced it with Dynatron 550. Went from wet after every rain to dry as a bone. Others have found the antenna grommet to be at fault, and even window seals, but my problem was the seam.

Thanks for the reply. I have the carpet out and the insulation pulled up so it can dry. I'm hoping I don't have to cut too much out of the floor. At least it's not structural and the rest of the van is great. I bought it in Jan so didn't catch this because from underneath you can't see it.

You have inspired me to tackle this. The only panel I could find to purchase was $250 plus shipping

I wouldnít waste my money on panels you donít see to fix rust holes. Iíd look for a donor part or fab my own out of sheet metal. Only you will know itís not original.
