I had a 94 K1500 that leaked water around the barn doors. It turned out to be the door gasket, even though it looked good. Water was getting behind the gasket at the top, going inside the gasket slot that slips over the sheet metal body flange that it attaches to, and then leaking out at the bottom into the cargo area. I pulled the gasket off completely, applied RTV inside the slot, and put the gasket back on. No more leak.


: Anybody have issues with water leaking in the rear barn doors (I have a 98 K1500)? First I thought doors were not closed all the way but it happened again after a heavy rain.
: Did a visual of the gaskets and they look reasonable.
: Any tricks to find out where the seal is not working?
: Thanks.
