Leak developed in my roof, started above passenger front window. Signs of leaking on the rear pillar. Seems to be a crack in the upper passenger side welding that runs along the roof.

I was told by a body shop that they would just run some sealant along the welding to do the fix, and/or reset the front windshield if it was leaking as well. It was about a $500 quote.

What kind of sealant should I used on the seem?

The weather strip needs to sit inside the track, so I don't want a build up of caulk in there. I was thinking that there should be some kind of solvent based sealant that was less viscous and could be spread like paint.

I want a permanent fix, seems like silicon would just wear out over time and the next owner would have to deal with the problem.

Is there a better way to fix this roof problem? I'd like to fix it before I sell.
