Here is a PDF with instructions--450432-1000WLA510.pdf (application/pdf Object)

Looks like there are no holes of drilling needed.

The metal shroud covering the window is loosened --sensor stuck into the top cover--then the wire tucked under the tin shroud--and back into the house.

I've installed a few Velux but never the rain sensor---Did you loose the instructions?
