Shower leak

I have a leak in a shower and i am struggling to get on top of it. The problem is the left side of the tiled wall where the shower glass connects into the wall.

I screwed and siliconed in the bracket to the tiles.

I then just put a blob of silicon at the bottom of this bracket and pushed the screen into the bracket. I then sealed up on the outside around the screen where it sits on the tray and up the side of the holding bracket.

I suppose i need to take the screen out and possibly refix the bracket.

Any ideas on the best way to approach this ?

ps. The silicon seal at the bottom of the tiles is not the problem and the tiles are good. The water leaks out at the back of the shower in the bottom left corner (so where the bracket fixes to the tiles)

not sure what you mean by that ? Do you mean have i sealed silicone on the inside of the frame ? I haven't as i thought you only sealed outside on the frame.

Sorry for late reply. The water ends up outside of the tray on the floor. It is coming from the back of the tray where it is tiled.
