    Sounds to me like your windshield is leaking /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
     
  3. Water could be making it's way by the door seal where the windshield post is. Or you have a rust hole at the cowl/windshild frame.

    Wow! I actually started having this same problem 2 days ago. Water collects right at the base of the driver's side kickpanel. On mine, the outside of the kickpanel is not wet at all. I think it's coming in from underneath it somehow.

    I didn't really troubleshoot it much, but when the door was open I did notice that the tubing that the power windows/locks wiring runs through wasn't secured to the body of the truck. It looks like there are two screws that are supposed to hold the tubing to the truck, and they are gone on mine.

    See if your tubing is in tact. Maybe it's the same problem on both our trucks.

    Thomas.
