My glovebox leaks?

Yesterday had a heavy rain(don't know exactly, as I wasn't home when it rained but the truck was, and it was parked) opened the passenger door later and saw a little water on the floormat. Thought, hum, wonder where that came from. Then opened the glovebox, it it was flooded! WTH?

I've never had a car or truck leak INTO the glovebox!

Where to start and what to fix/check?

Do you have cab lights? If so inspect for a cracked base.I had one that in heavy rains would leak into my dome light.( I have a sunroof) If no cab lights I suspect the windshield is your cause.

Sounds like the air duct for the air conditioning, it comes in right in front of the wind shield and when it leaks, it leaks a lot.

No mods, shady or other.

I do have cab lights, and a sunroof. I'll go check for cracks right now. Am I looking for something obvious, or small and easy to miss?

Ok. Why would it be leaking? A clogged drain or something cracked/broken, or something loose and not connected. I have had a variety of issues since FoMoCo took the cab off the r&r the engine.

take the glove box out and run it through a car wash. Or have someone run water from a garden hose over it while you are looking for water leaks.

Tried that. Didn't leak when I washed and rinsed it. Doesn't leak every time it rains. Only every once in a while. Sometimes on the driver side, sometimes into the glovebox. I don't mind too much about the driver side, although would like to stop it before rusts starts, but into the glovebox is a real pain!

if it is happening on both sides i would damn near bet on it being a bad seal on the windshield, have you had the windsheild replaced lately or just bought the truck used maybe the owner had it replaced? good way to tell is if it doesnt had the SUPER DUTY logo on the windsheild top dead center
