On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.

    My 2008 ram 1500 rear window has been leaking for a year and a half. dodge is on their 10th attempt. 5 new windows have been placed in. it seems that whoever made the slider window didn't know how to make a quality window.

    On my 2004, significant amounts of water would come in after a hard rain and collect under the rear seat. I traced it to the third brake light, instead of the rear window. I removed the third brake light, applied clear silicone caulk, and reinstalled. It stopped the leak completely. I know I may have a hard time removing the lens again if the bulb goes out, but I figured stopping the water was more important.

    leaking rear windshield on both passenger and driver side. complained enough to dodge, directly, and had them work it out with a local dodge dealership to repair at no charge. some times the squeaky whell gets the grease. in this, it got a repair job.

    Noticed a puddle of water under the drivers side rear seat. Pulled nack seat out and removed the trim. spray rear brake light and back window with water hose. Found rear window leaking profusely and running into the truck. Got on Ebay and ordered a stationary onepiece replacement window and some Eurethane sealant. Will replace the window this weekend. It is easy to remove as it only has some bendable tabs that hold it in.
