Alpine windows or just the seams of the roof....they all leak....you can drop your headling and seam seal the whole roof....it will prbably still leak though it a landy

Mine used to leak water in under the headlining from around the top corners of the A pillar where it meets the roof (there is a crappy foam seal which perishes). It used to conveniently collect as I was driving along in the rain and then if I went round a corner or braked it poured out of the headlining onto my head and arm.....nice. Useful if I was thirsty. I got some silicone sealant and replaced all the foam sealant with silicone which worked a treat....until something else started leaking elsewhere.

Do a google search for this:- WaterIngressManual.pdf
This pretty much sums it up.
