Angry water leak from back window of cab?

just bought a 04 f150 screw, real nice truck, but has anyone had problems with the cab leaking around the rear window or third brake light? if so, how did you fix it?

On my recently deceased 98 f-150 I had to have my rear window replaced.
the guy who replaced it said that (on my model at least) they used a plastic frame and if it's tightened down to tight it will crack so now my dead truck has a new metal framed one. Hope that helped.

If your truck is the new body than it's most likely the third break light. There is a tsb for it. I think most people here have fixed it by going to Lowe's and getting some weather stripping and replacing it under the light. That's what the problem is, the factory weather strip has failed or is installed wrong.

With all your windows rolled up tight, turn you’re blower on high, spray around the area you suspect with a soapy water solution and the leak should become obvious fast

I guess when you slam the doors like my kids do it doesn't help that seal either. I'll be checking mine tormorrow.

Leaking third light

Eight months ago my dealership replaced the gasket on my third light (rear cab-outside). Last week they replaced the headliner when it began to separate from the leak. Point is, if you let them replace it under the warranty, they'll be liable for the headliner too if it should start to separate-
