Is it the bottom of these and the pollen filter lids that need sealing, usually?

Or is it under this, there seems to be a rope like seal under there which seems to be in good nick?

Can't take the screws out so rather limited TBH!! ;)

The lids and screw hole can leak, as can the seal to the fans, so I’m afraid it’s both that could leak

I did exactly this job today... personally I put RTV under the top edge of the metal filter housing/ cover on both sides, and rtv'd the screw holes. I changed the filters a week or so ago, and they were sodden, there was a fair amount of water in there, but it hadn't got past the secondary seal (the square one in your second picture). I'm not sure it's the filter lids (put a long rubber band around the raised lip on the housing), but i RTVd the screw holes on the lids. I may RTV the top edge if i'm bored. While you're in that far blow out the drain holes in the body work with some compressed air

Did the same with the sealant on Saturday just gone - the drains were also completely blocked.
