My 73 Ranchero is getting water inside the cab behind the seat. I recently purchased and noticed silicone in the truck bed.

    I have also seen a lot of this model where the bed has been sealed with spray on bed liner. Is this being done to correct the problem?

Mazda Bt50 cab leaks on drivers side


I recently purchased a 2008 BT50 dual cab then 2 days later we had 500mm of rain and of course it leaked :( I had about 80mm of water on the drivers side floor and 30mm on the passenger side floor. I stripped the interior out of the car and started hosing the outside and watching where it was coming in. I took all the windscreen surrounds off and the cowl panel off below the screen there was no water coming in from that area. I had taken the gutter seals off but left the door seals on so the water was running down around the outside of the seals (with the door shut) and out at the bottom. From inside near the drivers side kick panel I could see water coming through seams in the metal work and when I took the door seal rubber off the body on the car I could see water was getting in at the top of the door seal rubber going down the front inside edge of the rubber and getting in through the seam where the rubber push's onto the body of the car (first problem). I took all the door seal rubbers off and run a bead of non corrosive silicon inside the cavity and pushed them back on. It seemed to have fixed the problem I dried the carpet and put it back together..Two weeks later we got another 325mm of rain and it leaked again :( not near as bad this time. Looking at the bottom of the door where the door trim meets the door I could see water coming from behind the trim and then into the car. I took the door trims off and could see water gets in when the window is up (all cars do) and is supposed to run out the drain holes in the bottom of the door but the water was dripping and splashing up to the back side of the door trim against the sheet of plastic that is supposed to seal against the door with the black mastic (it doesn't) and running straight into the car. I cut some plastic and siliconed them onto each opening on the inside of the door frame and then put the factory piece of plastic on as well (properley this time) as a backup.
So far so good.

Windshield leak began on passenger side of front seat area about three months ago....appears to be across top edge...runs down inside of windshield when in rains....truck has been parked outside since...


Windshield leaks are very difficult to stop. Not even pros can get it right all the time.

There is a silicone windshield sealant (Pep Boys) which has a consistency allowing it to "run" down into the holes / cracks -- sometimes this works sometimes it doesn't.

Yes, windshield trim will need to be removed...

And, yes, the light fixture should come off from top of vehicle, and "standard" silicone caulk can be used around that fixture to stop leaks.

1995 Chev Silverado 1500 extended cab, standard bed. Passenger seat won't latch. It just lays back all the way. What can I do. Or where to replace seat or rail.


you have a few options take the seat out and inspect it to see if anything is wedged in the mechanics of the seat I have seen debris cause problems like this . this is the cheap route if your lucky.
next route is probably whats wrong , your re-tractor is broke the gears inside wear out or sometime in a car accident they break also. you can try and purchase one new or go out to the salvage yard and find a seat that works and swap out your interior to the new metal frame. The salvage route would be more cost effective then new ..
Good luck

Westin nerf bars


Send them back and get the extended cab bars. if you have doors behind the passenger and driver seat it is the extended cab. If you don't want to do that, if you know a welder, they can weld them on for you.
