3rd brake light leak?

I seem to have a leak along the passenger side of my crew cab, it goes all the way along the passenger side. For the longest time I thought it was the windshield but couldnt find water under the dash on the firewall anywhere- just dry dust. I did more online research and found out that a lot of f150 guys have problems with the 3rd brake light seal? Sure enough I pulled the interior pannel back behind the rear seat and there is water way up in the back corner under the speaker.

So- for any of you who cant figure out where your leak is coming from- chances are it is the 3rd brake light.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.
