Default Rear Window Leak 03 Screw

Well it rained in the last couple days and i noticed heavy drops of water coming inside the cab just in the corner where headliner meets with the window above the passenger seat on drivers side. I came to conclusion that the actual seal around the window (polyurethane) is faulty in few spots and it allows alot of water to come in, my seat was wet, carpet was wet too and it is just horrible.

I have a power sliding window which makes the situation more complicated.

Any ideas? I don't have a shop to work on it, and working in a driveway full of mud isn't one of my top choices either since it will probably take several hours if not more.
I'm not sure yet how much a glass shop would charge me to do this job, so if anyone has any idea please share.

I check the third brake light and there is no way water gets passed the seal where wires go into the body, water just goes right through that polyurethane seal. Here is a couple of pictures for reference,




In this one you can actually see how water travelled down

Make sure your drip bar is still in place in your sunroof. Does your sliding shade go all the way back in, further than its supposed to?

It's a pretty easy job, but if you don't want to do it because of your work area I would suggest taking out the back seat and back interior trim. Take it to a shop and have them do it, with all the trim out it should be cheaper.

My bad...misunderstood where it was coming from.
However, I cheaped out with my back glass leak. Silicone windshield sealant from Advance Auto. It's thin, so gravity puts it right where it's needed. I loosened the window bolts and plastic trim, then pried it out just enough to get the tube in the gap. Squeezed a bit of the silicone in there, let it set for an hour or so, then tightened everything back down. Worked like a charm.

Before I fixed it, I narrowed the leak down to within an eight inch area, and only sealed that area. It held through this nasty cold winter we just had, so I figure it's good for a while.

[MENTION=103504]jollyroger331[/MENTION] ok thanks for the advice, i will call 'em tommorow and see the difference in prices.

[MENTION=169856]Ringleader[/MENTION] good for you , that's what i was planning on doing, just sealing it like you did with polyurethane instead of regular silicone.

Does power sliding rear window make it much harder to take it out?

Never taken out a power window but I assume there is just a power plug.
