First check all your gaskets because the chrome should not connect to the interior (if you look closely at my sig I dont have most of my chrome). However it is possible there is some leak due to whatever reason. The chrome normally just pops off and the only thing you should worry about is the plastic mounting nuts. As far as sealant I can't really say... I'd assume something similar to what you use on gaskets if nothing else check out your local auto store (I like using advance auto for generic stuff). If I get a chance I'll look something up for ya.

you can get a new door gasket. Runs for about $100(i got it for that price at the dealer over a year ago...so it may be cheaper.)

also check your sunroof...cause it may be leaking into that area and then leaking down through your headliner?

just an idea?

I know on my e30 the rain came in the drivers side in the top corner of the door, I replaced the gasket and all was good.

I'd check the condition of the gaskets first. On my car I was able to just simply reglue them because the rubber was still good, and it was just the glue had dissolved over the years. I donno it's always good to check the cheap solutions first, because usually it's not just one gasket.
