Do you have a roof or overhang above ? Lots of times home owners think windows are the source of water intrusion when in fact its a roof or the wall itself.

The issue is from above. Roof or sidewall is likely the issue.

Need to see a picture from further back to see the structure.

You can see the staining on the J channel and capping. The water is coming through from above.

Thats not the window. The water is coming from above and going behind the fascia board.
