It was raining pretty hard today in SLC, Utah. Didn't really think much about it, then started to clear up a little later in the day today. Took my team out for lunch, lucky enough one of them was in the back seat. He just grabs my shoulder and very seriously says "Dude, your truck is leaking...". I couldn't believe it until we stopped and I could feel it. The entire back end of the headliner was soaked. Once we got back to the office I jumped online and found a couple threads of similar issues. Turns out there is a TSB for the third brake light housing. They replaced that and said it should be good to go. Only time will tell, but my worry now is with how wet it was, should I be concerned about mold in the headliner? Should I have asked them to replace that as well as the new brake light housing?

I'd assume that if you do have issues with mold then asking for the headliner to be replaced would not be a stretch. It's a health issue at that point caused by a failed gasket.

Yeah they replaced the housing per the TSB, I'll just have to keep an eye out for mold. No idea how long its been leaking. Just glad it was caught.

All has been well so far. Just had about 2 and half feet of snow drop here in Utah, so still in the wet a bit. Continuing to monitor it until we get into some warmer weather.
