    I have a bad water leak that is draining inside the cab. It starts under the crowl peice thats on the passenger side just under the windsheild. It then runs down the kick pannel where the speaker is and puddles up where the passengers feet go. I have no idea on how to fix this. Was wondering if anyone can guide me the right way on fixing this leak. Here is a picture of where the leak starts.

    Probably a leaf or dirt plugged up the cowl drains.

    That thing is the fresh air vent. It lets fresh air in the cab. Put the Hvac controls on recirc and see if it still leaks.

    Maybe just find the exact spot where water comes in and then seal that seam/spot.
