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.

    Back window leaking again. Complete window replacement 2 yrs ago and now leaking again. Dodge refuses to admit that there is a serious design flaw. My next truck either won't have a sliding glass back window section or won't be a Dodge.
