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.

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.
Water leaking thru rear window seal and flooded the comparment under the back seat
My truck is a 2014 crew cab with a solid (non slider) back glass. It's 14 months old, this is the 4th time I've found a coi pond in the wells under the back seat, but this time it also soaked the driver side seat bottom in the back. I have talked about it with the dealer, they shrugged it off.....told me I'd need to make an appt. and leave it for testing.....this is insane. This is my 11th Dodge truck over 26 years, and I've never experienced anything like this with my others, the most recent being a 2012 quad. If I find a cure, I'll update, but judging from the large number of reports of this problem I've found, it looks like there is no fix......I have a $30K box of junk.

Water wets carpet under the rt rear seat. A dripping sound can be heard while drivivg in rain. I have an electric sliding back 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.

Our 2013 Dodge Ram has a sliding rear window. Our rainy season has started, and so has a leak creating a pool of water under the driver's side back seat. The earliest the dealer can schedule us is a week from now, and the voice on the phone doubted that this will be covered by warranty. If she's right -- or if, as some of these posts suggest, the problem can't be fixed -- my husband says we're getting a Silverado.
water leaking in at bottom of rear window and pooling under back seat.

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.
Any time it rains or I wash my truck water comes in the very back window around the middle

The seal around the break light on the cab get saturated with water. It appears that there is no rubber gasket between the cab and the light cover. so my under seat storage in the back is now filled with water. Washington state is a terrible place to have a leak.
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.

Water was leaking through the bed light of my 2012 ram 1500 and flooding underneath the rear seat. I sealed it with silicon and there has been no more flooding under the seats, however water is still getting on top of my from and rear seats and has caused mold to grow while I was away on deployment
