3rd brake light leaking water into cab 3rd brake light leaking water into cab

On 7/29/2020 a Huge Storm came through the area and dumped a butt load of rain. I was inside working like most people would during the week. Went out to my vehicle to get ready to go home and notices the back seat was wet. I proceeded to look upwards towards the third brake light and sure enough the area inside was wet on the head liner. Look down at the window and pull the back seat down and noticed a puddle of water inside of the cab. (Pictures are attached). This is unacceptable.

Over the past three years i read reviews and forums and many of the complaints on there are for the 3rd brake light leaking water into the cab.

Toyota needs to fix this issue and be covered under warranty for the life of the vehicle. This a huge safety risk. If the brake light shorts out it will short other electrical components out.

I've owned this vehicle for over three years and have not had any other issues with the truck.
