interior grab handle leaking water....

The upper plug that hides the bolt in the grab handle in the passenger side is getting water from somewhere. Anyone else have this issue or any other water leak issues?

I had it happen once on the drivers side after using a high pressure washer to get bugs off my windshield. I think some water got between the seal, or some water leaked in around my cab lights. Either way it has never happened again.

check your weatherstriping around the door opening. sometimes one of the lips will get stuck under another lip and let water in.

I had the exact same
Problem with mine when I first got it. It ended up being that the drain tube for the sunroof had been crushed when they put the foam or whatever they use into the a pillar.

I had the same challenge however I did not noticie until several months after I had the truck because it was garaged. I had the truck hooked up to my camper and it rained that night. As soon as I entered the truck I noticed water coming out of the passenger grab handle. Took it to the dealer which I new was going to be a challenge because it was going to be difficult to duplicated. Dealer called explaining the drain tube for the sunroof was not connected so whenever it rained it would enter the framing and run into the grab handle. Dealer said it was a simple fix.

No updates. Its a thread from 2011. But as they mentioned, its common for the sunroof drains to clog too.

My windshield installer screwed up once and it leaked and the water came down the grab handle. So if a recent install was done the windshield seal is leaking. It is nosier as well at highway speeds.

This happened to me, too. It was the drain tube from the sunroof.

Easy to correct

I've got this problem but no sunroof in my truck. I've checked the seals around the door and they look fine. Does it if it has been sitting in the rain or a heavy dew but not when raining while going down the road. I suspect it is a leak at the top of the windshield and that's why it only leaks when it's been sitting wet, not running down the road. Any product that can be used to seal under the black rubber trim seal of the windshield?

Any tricks or learnings from previous on these drain tubes? I need to blow mine out, think they have dirt and possible ice as the passenger side is always shaded they way I park normally, course, yesterday I backed in. I am not finding many pictures of this drain tube so will be taking some as I go today, unless it seems I can simply blow them out.
