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

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 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.
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.

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.
water leaking in at bottom of rear window and pooling under back seat.
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.

Took truck back to dealer at about 28000 miles they say they replaced a seal, but the problem reoccured shortly after.
Any time it rains or I wash my truck water comes in the very back window around the middle

I bought the truck used and just noticed it. Looks like its happened quite a bit. Lots of mold and water stains. Going to use some silicone to plug it up. I'll make it look pretty, but it will suck to take off. A truck is a truck, but it sucks because it's my dang daily driver. Dodge needs to make some type of recall for this when they figure it out and re-do my stinkin headliner....yes, it stinks.

I have a 2011 Crew cab. The rear sliding window leaks on the drivers side every time it rains. It leaks bad enough that the back seat looks like the window was open, the bin under the seat fills with water. The dealership ( Shotenkirk ) said it's not covered, tough sh!+ for you, but they would test it for $90 bucks. I looked through their used trucks on the lot through 2015 models on a post rainy afternoon, 8 out of 10 had the same problem.

Water leaking was a problem with the previous owner. She informed me that there was a leak in the back that she would notice water under the rear seat after rain or washing the truck. She had the rear window replaced TWICE and it didn't fix it. This week, rained for three days and ALL of that water ended up under the seat in the storage compartments. Completely full. Had to take out the back seat, the carpet pad, and the rear insulator wall to dry everything out. Dodge said to "bring it in and they'll fix it" but seeing all these other posts I highly doubt they'll actually fix it. Probably just going to end up sealing the window up with sealant and chalking it up as a loss.

Water leaking into passenger compartment under seats from rear window
I have had my truck for two years. I noticed the defect by accident. 1st two times it happened, I thought I left the rear sliding window opened. After that I started looking at other areas. The water.puddles on the storage compartment under the passenger seat. I have had to replace damaged items that I kept in that compartment. I thought I had fixed the problem but that is not the cases.

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.
water leaking into cab behind the drivers seat of my 2014 Ram 1500 reg cab Carpet is all wet. I sprayed the truck with a hose but cannot find a leak. I am taking it to the dealer Nov 4th to see if they can find it and fix it.
