My Ranger has a leak

so after the last 2 days of bad rain we've had my truck smells like mildew and the headliner is damp...anyone know some of the common places to seal/check besides the rear window, because this is mostly over on my passenger side headliner...

Any tips appreciated!


C.E.

they sell it at autozone, its a foam gasket kit.
or you could just call ford and get a new light for about $35.

well after the "monsoon" we had other night I figured it out... its somewhere at the top of the front windsheild, I removed the trim off the c or a pillar w/e you call it and took off the sinvisor to look and it was still damp after two days... so now I want to see if anyone else agrees with me on this... should I take to a professional, like my mom says...or do this my self, remove all the roof trim and seal every nook and cranny? any help would be appreciated...holla!

take it to a windshield shop and have them remove it and reseal it.
shouldnt be over $50
