Best repair for roof plug leak

Recommended Posts

I have a Ford Transit Connect 2014 XLT Long wheelbase blue with black roof plugs on the railing. One of them is cracked and leaks. I'm trying to fix the issue.
 

a) I can't find the plug replacement. Any leads to a website or part number?

 

b) How to dry and absorb the water?

 

c) Should I use a sealant like Great Stuff before covering it again?

 

d) Should I use Eternabond or duct tape to cover the plug?

 

e) If I can't find plugs, is it enough with sealant and tape?

 

f) Depending on what I use, would it be easy to remove if the next owner or I want to install a rack?

 

Thanks!

if its a cargo version, you can pull the plug out and put in a stainless steel bolt with a rubber washer under it.

The dealership will have the plug.  You will pay more.  A ring of silicone around the hole should work just fine.  You could probably just lift the cap, apply  silicone, then replace the cap.
