    Hi all, went to dealer for recall work regarding water intrusion on the rear break light above the bed. I was informed by the dealer that there was extensive mold growth throughout above headliner, carpets ect. I'm wondering if anyone has had this experience? I have some concerns about the health impacts of this particularly for my 8 year old that has been in the vehicle with me.

    First off, had the recall ben done yet? IF not, they will do it, and replace everything that is moldy. The recall pays for Serve Pro or similar service to come and remediate the mold. So there will not be any in it when the truck is reassembled and returned to you.

    I have done about 12 of these. It is very time consuming. All of the sound deadening material on the floors has to be removed by the tech. This takes a few hours. It takes Serve Pro about 3-4 hours to do what they do to it.

    When you get it back with new sound deadening, jute padding, carpet and headliner, it will smell like a new truck.
