Question Rain leaking into cab

2001 F350 ... every now and then I get water on both sides of the front cab. Even to the extent of getting into the glove box! Had window resealed twice! Have not checked into this yet but was told the cowl vent may not be draining properly. Are the drain tubes easy to find, if so where abouts would they be located? Unless someone else has had this issue before and it was something else ... tks Jay

If you have cab clearance lights I would make sure your lights are tight and the seals are good. Thats where my water in the cab came from.

The windshields leak at the bottom corners too. Get someone to hose it down while you're looking up from under the dash with a good light.

cab leaks

do not have any roof lights (would eventually like to put on a visor though). as for the lower window corners - the truck has been in for a windshield reseal twice - still water gets in. Not to say that they are doing their job right, I will try the hose issue when I get a chance. My trailer brake box packed it in the other day and left me brake lights on killing my batteries. Got the replacement box and have to install today hopefully and put my dash wiring back together - then go work on a D4 cat dozer. tks

Get it fixed quick, if your soak that GEM module on the firewall your truck will start doing weird stuff. My wipers, radio, horn, and a bunch of stuff just started working when they were shut off. At work the horn just started blaring for a few hours.. Theres a relay to shut off the abs and horn, that took awhile to find.

Mine was the windshield, id take it somewhere else to get it sealed up. Mine had some rust behind it that was keeping it from getting sealed correctly.
