Windshield Leaking Inside upper right side

Hey guys/gals. I got this annoying leak that showed up the past few weeks with the heavy rain. It looks like it was coming from across the gasket between the mirror and passenger pillar.

I bought some of the windshield sealant and went across the outside rubber between the frame and glass (upper part only). I also jabbed the tube from the inside where I thought the leak was coming from and gave a few squirts.

Two days later it rained again..... now in the leak is coming more on my side from above the rear view mirror!

Now I want to rip that entire black rubber part outside and shoot it with silicone then place that rubber back around the glass. Am I able to do that??

Also searching I read about the heater core part, but I don't think the water would run UP the windshield and drip from the top while the jeep is parked.

Silicone is only going to be a bandaid fix, it'll eventually leak again and worse, it may end up promoting rust in your windshield frame. The best solution would be to replace the windshield seal and bond it in to the frame with urethane adhesive.
