    Hi guys, so I have a 06 Tacoma, and I've recently started noticing that I have water leaking from the garage door opener/ sunglass holding. As well as from the light fixtures, both the front cab lights and the Middle cab light.
    I'm not sure why it's doing that, and I'd rather not year my car apart to find out, since I'm living in it currently.

    huh, usually 3rd brake light leaking is on 3rd gens but sounds like it might be affecting you as well. It can also be your windshield, has it ever been replaced?

    How's the gasket around the top of the windshield? Shark fin antenna? Those are the first two I would check.

    You can , put the A/C on full blast,close all the windows and doors.
    Then go around and spray soapy water around the windshield, 3rd brake light and Sat antenna pod.
    Se if you see any bubbles. That's where the water intrusion would be.

    Likely windshield leaking, possible rust. Get it dealt with sooner than later.
