    Do any of you Dodge owners have problems with your front windshield leaking ? My brother has a 96 1500 two wheel drive Ram and the floor is always wet after rain storms. It is a used truck he bought in 2004 and the water problem started happening this year. I know when he parks facing downhill the carpet is NOT as wet as when facing uphill . Any and all replies will be greatly appreciated. Keith :gunsfiring:

    my dad had this happen in his 94 turned out the airbox drain was clogged with crap and not the windshield leaking like we thought

    That was the fastest reply I have ever received on any forum. Where will I find this air box to see if it is clogged ? Thanks, Keith:gunsfiring:

    I think there was a TSB on the rear window leaking on 96's too.

    Take a garden hose and run it over suspect areas like the windshield, it may take a while but get a flashlight and try and locate the source.. I had a minor leak on my truck as well and i ended up finding it within an hour or so.. Just used a little but of silicon around the problem area and no more issues since.

    Spitz , I will check with the hose and flashlight if the airbox is not full of debris. Thanks , Keith

    It was for the gasket on the 3rd brake light.
