Water Leak Due to Faulty Rear Window Seal on Dodge Ram 1500

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.

Water leaking thru rear window seal and flooded the comparment under the back seat

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.

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.

I have a 2013 Dodge Ram 4 door. After soaking rain this weekend noticed water had come in either through the back windshield or the 3rd brake light. Scheduled to have Dodge rep look at the problem and fix it on Monday. After reading all the issues on this site has anyone asked about seat and or inside roof replacement? I am concerned about mold and the back part of the inside roof being damaged.

My 08 has leaked since I had it. Bought brand new in 07 6 month after buying I noticed under the back set was wet. Took it to the Dodge dealer I purchased from, they said it was fixed. Well not fixed. I complained every service visit. Now window floods under back set. Deal would not cover new window. But was nice enough to tell me that I could bust my back window and fill it on my insurance. So not right. Dodg r company should stand behind their products.

Just noticed this like all others, I did not hear it drip, but truck always had a moldy basement smell to it.. after our last hard rain, i just happened to raise the seats to get some stuff out of the storage compartment and it was floating in the storage compartment!! i had a friend spray the back window with the hose and it seemed fine until all of a sudden, water filled the track and starting running down the back o the cab into the storage compartments again... hard to pinpoint as the water covers alot of the window before it starts leaking... was hoping to find a fix,., but maybe not?? thats to bad

After my 2013 Ram 1500 sat in the rain for a few days, I noticed a funky smell. I checked under the back seat and there was water everywhere. I am taking it to a dealership on Tuesday.
My rear window leaks, more toward the passenger side of the vehicle, when I go through the car wash or during real heavy downpours. We don't have much rain here at all, so not a huge problem. When going through car wash, I secure a heavy towel up tight against the window. Will have it looked at when I can afford to have it fixed. Just guessing at the mileage, I didn't notice it till I had passengers back there, who noticed it. No moldy smells or wet floors, etc.

dodge replaced window at 50,000. They first sealed it, didn't work. The third trip back they finally replaced it. It still leaks, Dodge will not do anything about it now. I have 104,000 and carpet gets soaked with puddle of water in back. now there is mold starting to form.

My 2012 rears Lider was replaced by huffins in lewisville tx.thay put in aN after market window and it doesn't have defrost and leeks like a sifter thay won't return my calls. James alford
My 07 Ram quad cab also leaked around the back window. Glass shops all said it was common for Rams. Bc I bought it used, I had no recourse. I used silicone sealant, and a drinking straw to get the sealant all the way in. Ran it across the entire top length of window and never had any more problems
