Egress window leak

Hi, I have an egress window leak that I would like to first try to fix myself and am not sure how to procede. The window seems to leak from water seeping past the metal well onto the concrete sill/cap area. The leak happens several days after a rain and the well does not fill up with water.

You should start by cutting out the old caulking... brush the foundation with a steel brush, and let it dry out before you caulk it again. Use a sealant especially for masonry / concrete. The surfaces need to be clean and dry.
