means u got some good amount of rust in ur back window. best bet is to take it to a panel beater and get them to weld a new bit of plate there. then therell be now more hasles.

usually when u can see the rust bubbles and stuff in the corner of ur windows or can actually see the rust.,it means below the paint is ****ed lol. its the same on my vl. i wouldnt go doing a back yarder job tho and just chucking silicon at it, as eventaully the silicon will eat thru ur paint and just fall off, with ur paint attached. only thing is, it can be kinda expensive to get it all fixed. but good luck

Its worth getting it done properly in my opinion.
You'll get a nice suprise when you kick the window out, something similar to this...



Thats whats left of the bottom right corner

pull off your boot seal and have a look, thats just as likely to be rusted.
