    Okay, after looking at what could be leaking water into my rear quarter, I noticed that the seal around my rear sliding side windows is "separating". I could see on the inside where the wind had forced water around the glass and inside to run down into the quarter. I have attached a couple of pics I took this evening :D

    C-Dan, how do I go about fixing this one??? ???

    Jody,

    I have seen that "gap" before. I have it on one of my quarter windows. The only way to fix it is to replace the "run" around the window frame. I'm not sure that your water issues are coming from that gap. You would need to force water thru that gap to get it inside the vehicle. I still think that you are getting water thru the holes in the quarter panel where the belt moulding is attached. Do this:

    Remove the LH interior access panel and study the inside surface of the quarter panel. look for "tracks" of water that may be running down the panel. In addition, flood the glass area with a garden hose while you watch the inside of the quarter.
    One other possibility is that the vent to the rear of the glass is leaking.

    Mine has the same gap on the DS. Haven't checked the PS... might be there too.
