3rd brake light leaking water in cab

fellas on my 08 last winter I had to have a new rear glass put in it due to a 4 wheeler coming loose and goin threw it. and ever since then I have had water come into the cab. I took it back to the window place a couple weeks after it was done and they swore up and down it was the 3rd brake light.. so i replaced it with a recon unit and sealed it up with sealicone. well last weekend driving around in a serious down poor my buddys gf got soaked.. well I took it back in to the window place and they swear up and down its the brake light. they put some kind of "Special" sealant on it. and the guy that owns the shop has an 08 and says that his is leaking water through it to.. and he said hes seen several that have leaked come into his shop. all i know is it didnt leak until after i had the window replaced. so basically i was wondering if anybody else has run into this or do you think this window guy is blowing smoke up my butt...

Thanks,

Drew

Where do you live at and does it rain? Next time it rains look at your back window and feel the carpet, it might look like its running down on the outside but most likely its not!
