I have heard of some sunroofs leaking and the third brake light, but I haven't heard thus one before.

For the past year or so, when I would wash my truck there would be a small puddle on my passenger side floor mat (I have husky liners so its easy to see that it's a decent amount). I can't recall which, but it would only happen when the truck was facing one direction on the driveway that was as steal as the CA codes would allow.

It only happened when I washed the truck, so it didn't worry me, I figured it wouldn't cause any damage. It didn't make a difference with where I had the dial on the HVAC not that I thought it would.

Today was the first rain of the season and it was a pretty strong storm and I left my truck in my business's parking lot while I too my dads truck out for about 8 hours. My truck was left in an open area. I got back in and there was water on the passenger side mat. It wasn't as much as when I would wash it, but it was a decent amount. It looked to be about as much as would get on the mat if I got in with wet shoes.

I don't want this to cause me issues later on with rusting or mildew and everything else. What could be casing this or where might it be coming in at?

I've had the same situation after a big rain. I believe it is coming from the HVAC vent door that pulls air from outside the cab when AC dial is set accordingly. You may make sure it is not stuck open.

I think there's a TSB for some of the older trucks for weatherstripping on the front A-pillar that gets torn from the front door's opening and closing. My truck has torn weatherstrips but in my case they don't leak and I'm too cheap to buy replacements.

Mine was leaking onto the rear seat where the antenna thing on top was. Dropped a bead of silocone around it never had another issue.

I will have to go look at when I had my windshield replaced, but I did have it done early this year I believe. They may have done something incorrectly. I do have a star on my drivers side right now but I don't really want to replace it because I know as soon as I do, I'll get another one. It happened the last 2 times I replaced it.

I thought about that, but I have had the dial in different spots, and it happens every time. The air is working fine and it always comes out where it's supposed to.

I checked this and no dice.

There is. I noticed mine was ripped a few years back so I called up the dealer for the drivers side and they told me about it and said I should get both sides, so I did. Pretty bad design flaw, but it does save them money by dong it the way they did.

Handel is clean and nothing's changed that way. It is too much water to be that I think, but I could be wrong.

I notice wind notice if I'm doing 85+ or if it is an excessively windy day. I really heard it when I was rolling 100k miles a a few months back and I was at 115 mph on I-80

It is not wet anywhere you can see but the floor, correct? So, it must be coming from under the dash. If i had to guess, I would say it could be leaking around the bottom of the windshield on the passenger side. When it gets wet I would open the hood and look at that corner, near the windshield and see if it is wet and see if it is leaking down onto the firewall and getting in through one of the rubber grommets. Or, look at it now in that area and see if there are water marks from the last time it leaked.
