    Are you thinking of Ozium? I've done that twice now, once since I've stopped the major leaking from the sunroof (the sunroof was also leaking as it was soaking the roof). Hopefully since I've removed the foam pad at the front passenger floor board it will take care of it. If not, may do the Ozium again since I've got the leak taken care of or may go ahead with pulling the duct work out.

    The air's been better since I've taken the carpet and carpet pad out so I'm thinking this may be the last piece since that foam on the floor board was stained black with likely mold.

    XM antenna. It's a $650 repair at the dealer. Very common.

    I have never found the rubber foam stuff. mine desentegraded too. I had to clean it all out. I never put anything back in its place though.

    That said, i think might be prudent to put dynomat there (or dynomat like insulation).

    Also pretty sure that is your condensate line, at least that is easiet thing to check and quite common.

    Although the XM antenna is a common source for leaks, the OP did disclose in post #11 that he found the source of the leak as being a crack at the base of the windshield.

    I would have to agree with @Matthew Jeschke that $650 would have put me over the edge as the part costs less that $200 and is easily replaced.

    I'm just telling you what happens at the dealer. I'm not saying it's right, or wrong. But I know they replace XM antenna's on a regular basis for leaking.

    My 2019 had a windshield leak at the very top on the passenger side since it was new apparently. Dealership removed window and a glass company resealed it. Said they found the original urethane seal to be distorted. Leaked down the A-pillar to the passenger side floorboard, but I also found drips on the dashboard too as well as water trails on the A-pillar plastic trim and handle too.

    Sorry for the late response on this--on my '04, I had an issue like yours and it was in the door pillar under the windshield a-pillars. if you pull off the kick panel trim (where the hood latch is) and it's mate on the passenger side, you'll see a hole where the round metal tab that holds the kick panel in. in that cavity is a piece of foam--apparently over time, the foam adhesive gives up and blocks the path for water to run down under the truck. I basically used a dental pick to pull the foam out, which cleared the path and fixed the leak. I tested out (before/after pulling the foam) by using a hose on the windshield and watching the water bubble out of the hole, then having it go out without issue after removing the foam. I'll snap a pic of the area and post it, if you need a better description of the area I'm talking about.
