I just got a phone call with the bill for the very same problem After a week and multiple phone calls, the dealer said it was the rear brake light seal, the back window seal and the drivers side door seal. All at the same time? Give me a break. $800.00 in seals and labor with only 42,000 miles. This is my third Chevy in a row and i'm done. I'm switching brands.

We have a 2005 GMC Canyon
Rain keeps leaking and running down the inside back window
We tried to seal the seam right above the window but it
Seems to be coming from the roof itself.
Anyone else have this problem?

Have you had any look at the problem for you? I would recommend having a dealership look at the concern so it doesn't do any real damage to the vehicle. Thank you,

What is leaking is a defective gasket on the roof brake light. Remove the light see if you can re-glue the gasket to the light housing, use some clear silicone. I found this problem myself, after I was charged to have my rear window resealed! It is not the window. Also check under your carpet...the insulation is probably wet, and will need to be dried out. It may rust and/or mold! But it is the light leaking!

You are correct. I did take it to the dealer and had it fixed under warranty
Thank you for the tip on the carpet. I will check it out.

I have a 2004 quad cab Canyon and had a leak near the back window as well. I read on another forum about the 3rd brake light and decided to take a look. One forum mentioned repairing it with Frost King door foam.
Once I pulled the light it was evident why I was getting the leak in the headliner on the one side. First off my truck is in the driveway in the same spot and it tilts to one side. Anyway behind the 3rd brake light is a channel and the water was getting in and just finding the lowest spot to come out.
Anyway, I used the Frost King to make a new gasket as the original one caved in around the middle light sockets. After performing this repair it rain like heck in the northeast, actually Irene came to town, and guess what . . . no leaks.
To help my cause because I was unsure how long it was leaking I took a local mechanic's advise and put my home dehumidifier in the truck over night with the windows cranked up. Next morning there was a 12oz glass of water in the bucket. I feel much better knowing that there is less moisture in the truck, but I still have some concern that mildew will occur.
