    Compressed air and the blazing sun, if it ever shows.... Then seal it up real good. Then the silocone dry a few more hours in the sun.

    Might even be a headlight seal, rather the dust cap cover.
    I had to do the same thing to my GST and it never leaked. Try and see if there is any water marks that would prove the dust cap(with yhe new hole) is the source.
