Truck leaked again through the 3rd brake light, got the headliner all stained. This is after the dealer fix a few weeks ago. I called the service manager today and I was not happy. He said he would personally work on it next time I bring it in. I told him I wanted a new headliner because I'm sure they are cardboard underneath and that will fall apart soon after being wet two times. Take the truck in thursday, keep you posted.

Not to be a jerk, but remember when I said this:

If I were you I'd fix the leak yourself the way I did, see this thread, it takes about 30 minutes and $10. It will be a much better, longer lasting fix than the dealer's...
and this:

...It took me less time to do it myself than it would have to take to the dealer anyway...
Just follow my write up; save yourself the time and aggravation, and it'll never leak again...if you'd just done it the first time it would have been fixed 30 minutes later.

GEEEEZZZZ....Man, you're a jerk....LOL. I'm already agitated trying to work on a washing machine. I don't think I could handle additional stress and time on lousy workmanship from the dealer. I'm wondering If I should just take the initiative and replace it myself BEFORE it leaks?

Glad I saw this.

Well, they've been leaking long since 2005. Both my 96 Ram, and my 99 Ram, as well as my 05 Dakota have all leaked...I'm watching my new (to me) 09 Ram very carefully!!!

Yeah, you're right Snrusnak, I should have. The thing is now, they agree to a new headliner after the leak is fixed, so I'll wait to see what they did and I'll follow your instructions and do it myself and then request the new headliner in a few weeks. Funny thing is, I dropped it off this morning to the dealer with your printed instructions on how to fix it. Lol

lol, that's sad that they can't figure it out. Seems like many tech's anymore are just "part replacers" and have no sense on really diagnosing the problem...

I just called the service manager and he said they replaced the whole 3rd brake light assembly with a new part number one that Dodge said to use. Not sure if that has a better gasket or not. I'm going to look at it this weekend and if it's that sponge gasket, I'm replacing it. I think the techs just do what Dodge states they need to do to fix a problem even if they know themselves it isn't going to work. They probably don't give a rats ass. I'll let you know what the new assembly looks like. Thanks for the info on replacing the gasket Sean.

Hope it works out. I know 6 months-12 months ago when I researched it there was no "updated" part. The tech at the dealer actually told me there was but upon ordering it it had an identical gasket, just brand new. I told them to keep it on the shelf I wasn't going to use it...

Maybe now they have updated it though...
