Default leaking water...again.

So a few weeks ago i noticed my window getting fogged up on the inside. I then noticed water drops on the top of my back seat drivers side. looked under the seat in the storage area and had about 2 inches of water. Off the the dealer. They replaced my whole back window, and re tinted it with 5% for me. no change. So far so good. Also my passenger seat had an annoying squeak so they replaced the brackets.... BUT they forgot to hook up the lever to recline the seat... So after this last week of rain, checked under my seat again, and MORE WATER!!! Where could this be coming from now? Goin back to the dealer tomorrow to find out. Anyone had any similar water leak issues?

If it's not the 3rd brake light, then I'd have them look at the drip rails

Rams seem to have water leak problems as there are many of threads each week.

I will add another place where water comes in: the roof marker lamps. Although most 1500s do not have them, many of the 2500s do. Dodge replaced all the rubber gaskets on mine about a year after buying it since water was getting in through a couple of them. So, if you have roof lights, they should be on your list as well if you experience water leaks.

The 3rd brake light is on the dealer recall list, why the hell wouldn't they have checked it first?

ALL vehicles have water leaks from time to time. Don't get down on Rams. We fix more GM and import water leaks than Chrysler's.
