Default Re: leak

There are other threads on leaks, but they all say to do what you have already done. What I did to see if it would stop was put black electrical tape in the top back corner of the door jam, where it meets the roof and the corner piece. It seemed like the water was running down from there and dripping off the plastic onto my rear speaker. After I put electrical tape there, I waited for the next big rainfall, and ta-da, no more wet interior. It's worth a try.
I also have a 1998 Ranger Regular Cab.

My '03 did this too. Took and get some of that windshield sealant and went across the top and sides of that rubber seal for the back glass, and filled up all the voids. No more leakage.
