Default Rear Window Leaking

We had a pretty big rain storm here yesterday. When I got into my truck at the end of the day, I noticed water had come in through the rear sliding window. Enough so thjat some had acumulated in the cup holder on the jack cover.

Has anyone ever had this issue? Is there a way to better seal it?

Yes, I've had the exact same problem. When I first got the truck, I would notice sometimes the cupholder would be half full of water. Then, magically it stopped, and it hasn't happened in a long time. It was strange because I could never pinpoint exactly where it was getting in at.
I know this doesn't help you with yours at all, but at least you know it's not only your truck.

Maybe get in there and look while someone hoses down the area all around the window....

Well I noticed it was actually coming in from above the window.

I think it might be either one of these two things:

1. Its coming in from the rubber seal around the window. It doestn look to tight.

2. Its coming in through the rear light on the back of the cab.

I was thinking about removing the light, applying a rub on gasket and trying that...

rangers are known for this, and IIRC it is caused by the 3rd brake light, put some silicone around the light and inside the light should fix the problem, also check the seals around the back window, make sure everything is nice and tight.

I was about to buy a new rear window seal, but I'll give the silicone around the third brake light a try.

¡Gracias!
