    So a few weeks ago I noticed my floor getting wet underneath my driver side mat. I didn’t think nothing of it but I recently found out that I have a leak somewhere. It is a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext Cab. The driver side carpet gets wet and of course the insulation under it is soaked. I took the plastic piece that ran along side of the edge from the front to the back and noticed water was popped up in there also, then lifted the carpet (that was dry) in the back and the insulation under it was completely soaked. Any ideas of where a leak could be or has anyone else had this problem before?

    Have you tried taking some panels off and doing some investigation? I feel like someone is trolling

    The vents on the back wall are known the leak as well. Pop them out and silicone around the edges. They like to dry up and not seal anymore.

    3rd brake light is a common culprit

    Ever had the window replaced? My gray truck had a replacement before me, and it leaks slightly if parked a certain way on an incline in the rain.

    start pulling interior panels while someone sprays a hose on the roof, see where the water is coming in


    this is literally what dealership mechanics do to find water leaks

    I had the sealant on the outside of the roof get dry and crack . Had the same leak as you . I finally found it about a month before I sold it so I never ended up fixing it
