enter image description hereWe have a fixed pane window that is wood in the inside but seems to be vinyl on the outside.

enter image description here Inside the house there is a removable pane, then it's a fixed exterior pane.

I noticed a damp patch appearing, so I put silicone on the exterior windows between the glass and the vinyl, enter image description here

this doesn't seem to have fixed the issue and the damp patch was spreading, so I removed the wood Image

There was a lot of wet decaying wood.

I noticed there is a little plastic tube that isn't quite aligned with the weep hole, can this cause the issue?

I think I can just fill the hole with epoxy or plastic wood, but 1. Do I need to do anything with the small plastic tube drain, that is near the weep hole? 2. There seems to be caulk/silicone inside the rotted space that is coming off, can I just caulk outside the window? Or should I try to seal it from the inside? I can only seal up to where I have removed the wood

  1. Any other tips?

    Do not seal weep holes ,water will pool and wreck even more, – user101687 Jun 11 at 23:08
  • Added bigger picture, note that the gutters have gutter guards and are clear inside,I need to move the debis but there are plenty of gaps for water to run into – Gribbler Jun 12 at 0:24
  • Ya gutter dirty. Look at roof flashing above window near house or crack in roof capping. Hard to say looks ok. Roof not flat is it. Has to be up high and runs down. my guess. – user101687 Jun 12 at 0:39
