Ware is invading the cab again

So i was just dealing with the problem, but now its coming when it is raining too. I took some pictures to see if they might help?

Today it is raining very heavy here and I came out from school (3 hrs) and I found a puddle on my mat. I took the picture when I got home so thats why it is all across the mat. It is getting on the carpet and under the mat and I'm afraid that it will lead to molding problems if I don't get it fixed. As far as I can trace it is to behind that bolt in the picture.

I had some friends telling me how anal I am for keeping my truck so clean and that it would never see dirt since it was a 4wd. I did have to throw it into 4wd to get out of the mud. I don't think I'll do it again as long as I have street tires so I don't get stuck

Just talk to your insurance company if you have free glass. You need a new front windshield.

I got a new windshield not too long ago. I think it was early this year. It's $100 for a windshield and I can get as many as I want.

The reason I don't get a new windshield is because within a week or two I get another rock chip/crack. With $100 windshield plus $45 for tint it gets expensive getting a new windshield all the time.

The cheap glass is designed to get chips. So you keep getting new ones.

Get someone who knows what they are doing to replace your window. Use OEM quality glass, and not some punk at the gas station. There is nowhere else the water is coming from when leaking from the front.

That's the only spot. I just call up the insure cw and they give me another number to call. Then that company recommends local replacement companies. The one thing I liked about this company is that they are mobile and they drive a brand new truck and not some old POS. It might be a furd, but it's a nice furd.

Any particular brand of glass good? I think the one I have now is called plexington or something like that.

I'll bet the drain tubes under the wiper cowl are plugged up. Remove the wiper cowl and check fro leaves, dirt, and just plain trash at each end. If the water that get into the wiper cowl area has no place to go, it'll fill up until the water starts to drain into the air inlet for the HVAC unit. When I keep get oak tree leave in my blower motor fan, I took it apart and found all kinds of crap under there.


If you start a thread, be responsible and post the final outcome.

I'll rave to try cleaning under there, thanks! Hopefully there will be a brake in the rain today where I can go do that. The weather folk are saying today and tomorrow will be the worst rain storm in 30 yrs. I say, bring it!

I had the same problem with mine, it was bad weather stripping. I was getting water from under the piller.
