    I just washed my truck and the headliner was wet right where it meets the back window. I haven't noticed this problem in the rain but I just could have missed it. Anyone else have this problem? ::sigh:: Guess I'll have to unload all the tools and take it in.

    Was your back slider window closed all the way? Also, do you have a roof rack or something?

    I checked the rear window and it was latched shut. I don't have a roof rack but I do have two 1" wide strips of rubber that run along the roof right next to where the front and rear doors meet the top of the cab. I think thats the standard setup for these trucks.

    The subwoofer cover was wet with drops of water too, like water had sprayed in as well as dripped through the headliner. I may have someone take a hose to the rear of the truck while I sit inside it and see where its coming in.

    I'm going to take my truck in next week for the headliner and try to get the leaf spring TSB done.

    Sounds like a leak around the third brake light above the rear window. It has a gasket with adhesive on both sides.

    Did you take the third brake light out for anything? Satelite radio antenna install maybe? If so you need to reseal the gasket.

    I've never had that problem, but I guess I never paid attention back there for wetness. I'll check next time though.

    Hmm...seemed wetter today after sitting out in the rain. Its raining all night tonight so I'll check again in the morning. I shot water all over both of my Nissans and never had any water get into the cabin. I'm going to try and get this and the spring TSB done at the same time.
