Default 3200 SCR Foredeck hand railing

The railing that runs between the deck pads appears to be leaking into main cabin. Does anyone know how they are attached. (at work so cant look) anyone had this issue?

screwed down to the foredeck, screws may be visible in the headline seams or behind the liner.

Just noticed you posted twice and this is the wrong thread section for your question. Maybe shrew can merge it into the other.
After more research I am thinking its more likley the cup holder screws are leaking or the windshield wipers. Not sure if its possible for railing to leak. Thoughts?

All screws penetrate the fiberglass and need to be bedded, this bedding can fail over the years. Try using a hose and soak small areas at a time to see if you can isolate the leak.

Unfortunatly its not leaking straight down Its following the seam in the upholstered ceiling tile. I think I am just going to rebed all deck screws I can find

I would be surprised if the rail stanchions were screwed. They are a piece of safety equipment. I'd like to think they were bolted and backed with washers and locking nuts.
