Marc,

That happened to me too, the weep holes filled up with junk and just blocked the water when it rained, whenever i turned into my driveway, which is up hill, the water poured into the passenger seat. I just took a hose and squirted water in through the weep holes which are on the bottom of the window, where the top of the door meets the bottom of the window frame, that shot the junk back out through the top and cleared it up

I drilled holes in the bottom of the door frames.

water is not getting into the door frame fast enough or at all-it's staying in the bottom of the window frame(in the space of window lock-from one side to the other) water then spills out of bottom of glass frame area when truck is not level!!

Thats what happened to me, the weep holes for the window are on the outside of the door where the window frame meets the door. They are lil slits near the rear and front ofthe frame.
