I'm quite interested in where this leak is coming in as I've viewed a talisman with the same problem on the driver side rear window. The window frame has been sealed with silicone  looks very messy but it now dry on the inside window ledge. We are buying the van but will remove the silicone and sort problem properly. Any info on this will help us too ,we have not collected the van yet .

If the leak is at the front lower corner of the side windows, then it's likely due to a combination of the stance of the van, which allows water to run down and collect there, and capillary action transferring that water up inside the old and deteriorating rubber window seal to the inner aluminium channel, where it then overflows into the van.

If that looks like the case, then cleaning all the debris and flora out of the outer and inner channels, and replacing the window seals, available from AS, should solve the problem.
It did with our old and very similar Executive.

EDIT: You may also have to adjust the window catches to ensure that the seal is working properly.

I had exactly the same problem in the van we've just bought, I worked the seal in the groove in which it sits and fingers crossed that's sorted it

On my 2004 Talisman I have had leaks on both side windows. One required removal of the window and frame and resealing (done by AS) the other just required the rubber seal replaced which was obtained from AS spares and then a DIY job.
