AT AROUND 3500 MILES ON MY 2009 FORD F150 SUPERCREW, I NOTICED A MILDEW SMELL AND CONDENSATION FORMING ON THE INSIDE OF MY WINDOWS. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND IT IS DUE TO LIQUID IN THE CAB SOMEWHERE. I PULLED UP EACH KICKPLATE AND FOUND THE PROBLEM TO BE UNDER MY RIGHT REAR CAB KICKPLATE. WATER WAS ACCUMULATING DOWN THERE WITH ALL THE ELECTRICAL WIRES. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY STATED IT WAS DUE TO THE THIRD BRAKE LIGHT. IT WAS REPLACED. AT 5000, I NOTICED THE SMELL AGAIN AND KNEW RIGHT WHERE TO LOOK. I DID AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALER AND THEY REPLACED THE SAME THIRD BRAKE LIGHT ONLY THEY SAID THIS ONE HAD A STRONGER SEAL. I JUST HIT 6500 MILES AND NOTICED THE SAME PROBLEM AND SMELL, AND POPPED THE KICKPLATE AND HAD THE WATER AGAIN. I AM FIXING TO CALL THE DEALER ON MONDAY TO LET THEM KNOW. AFTER LOOKING IN MY CAB I NOTICED A SPOT OF DRIED WATER RESIDUE ON MY HEADLINER. I AM GOING TO POINT THIS OUT TO THEM AND LET THEM KNOW SOMETHING IS NOT SEALING CORRECTLY WHICH COULD VERY WELL COMPROMISE THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM WITH ALL THE WIRES DOWN UNDER THE KICKPLATE WHERE THE WATER ACCUMULATES.
