Where are the cowl drains located on a 2003 Ram. With all this rain I think I am getting water in the cab. Carpet feels a little damp under the dash. My factory manual doesn't show me anything. Thanks

Removed the cowl cover and found the drains in the corners. Big slots. Both sides had leaves blocking them so I think I cured my problem

On my 04 1-ton the cab light seals had dried and cracked and when it rains water drips from the ceiling. eyes At least you don't have that issue. I will have to check the cowl drains though, it has been sitting for 9 months outside and it is helicopter season here, so they are probably clogging up. work

The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

My '03 2500 had cab lights on it. It started leaking from the passenger side grab handle in a hard rain. shocked I traded it in on the '06 before I had a chance to look at it. wink
Good to know about the cowl drains, just in case. up

check the light on the back of the cab as well, it lets in water too.
