Thumbs down Two rear cabin corners leaking water!

Does anyone know how to fix the two rear corners of my cabin from leaking when it rains?

the 2009 & newer Rams have a couple places that could leak

3rd brake light housing seal is the most likely place, i believe that you would notice stains above the rear sliding window

i have heard of the sliding window leaking

a few people have mentioned a leak from the 2 vents that pass through the back of the cab, between the rear seat & the pickup bed

Personally i have not had any leaking, so i'll let others tell you what they did to fix it

Good Luck with the fix

I had this problem, I sealed the 3rd brake light, and then the trim on top of the cab and that fixed it. The black trim that runs along the top of the cab from front to back can leak at the back. If you stand in the bed and gently pry up the back end of the trim you can find a hole were the trim fastens to the truck. I filled the whole with clear sealant and no more leak!
Good luck, I got tons of helpful hints from the folks on this forum.

I also had the same problem, the dealer resealed the 3rd break light and the problem was gone.

More than likely to be the third brake light. Here is a link to a great post about how to fix it. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=87346

I recently tackled the issue, although my solution was different. You can read my reply in that post. Either way, take care of it now before your cabin turns into an aquarium, and smells like one too.

If the link doesn't get you there, search for the post titled "3rd brake light leak fix".
