Back window leaks?

Has anyone else dealt with this? I just noticed some water build up around the bottom of my rear sliding glass window.

If so How did you go about fixing it? thanks

lemme see if I can splain this

the channel for the bottom of the sliding glass window has a couple drains in it(by design) and if they get plugged with dirt or debris of some kind they don't drain properly. then moisture is allowed to seep inside.

you can clean them out without removing the window or damaging the seal if your careful. clean the channel out good and locate the drains and clean them.

edit:I see yer from TX. You have a lotta dust like we do here in AZ. It occurs frequently.

I will check for the drains next week. A buddy of mine told me that I could use a air compressure to help push the junk out of the tubes. Is this safe? Or will it damage the tubes

Tubes? What tubes?

You problably have power slider. But the channels will still have drains. I'll see if I can get a decent picher of where to look for the drains tommorrow.

I thought that mine was leaking but it was the cover over the third brake light. Dealer replaced and now no more leaks.

Third brake light/cargo light gasket. I had the same issue. It just gets weathered & brittle. I replaced mine & that fixed the leak.
