Exclamation Rear window Leaking?

So i took my truck to dodge to have the power rear slider fixed which took 4 days! I got it back and the next day it was down pouring all day. I noticed water dripping onto my back seat and when i got a closer look the whole rear side of the headliner was soaked. It appears that they didn't seal the rear window up on the outside good enough. Has anybody else had this problem.

I had to have my rear slider window taken out due to some body work and they said it had to be replaced once it has been taken out due to the seal being broke once removed or something along those lines !

I'm taking mine back on monday, it looks like they'll have to replace the rubber seal around the entire window. I'll let you know what happens

third brake light seal is notorious for leaks too...could be your culprit...

Yeah if the water is pooling in the rear corners of the headliner it is most likely the brake light. It took me about 30 minutes and $10 to fix my self, much faster than taking it to the dealer, and a better fix IMO:

for almost 2 years i had a leak in 96 ram (which i recently sold to buy the 2101) and it wasnt until i read snrusnak's post that we fixed the leak. the water travelled undetected to the front passenger floor board...i swore it was the windshield seal or door seal...freaking third brake seal....unfortunately 15 years later it is still an issue!
