Hi, I found this thread when trying to figure out where a potential leak was coming from. I noticed wet carpet under back seat driver side in my 2006 Frontier Crew Cab SE. So I pulled the rear cabin trim panel under the window, then the carpeting against the back wall, like suggested above. My wife helped by spraying the exterior "problem areas" with a hose starting from the center high mount brake light, then the rear window perimeter, then the gap between the bed & cabin. The leak was coming from the cabin air vent hidden beneath the back wall carpeting. As soon as she sprayed this area, I could see the water coming in around the seal, but the rubber flaps may also be old and not forming a good seal.
I've looked for a replacement vent part in suggested online parts stores with no luck- None of the parts diagrams show the replacement vent part, so I'm really not sure what to call it, or how to find it. If I can't find the part online, I may try to fix the perimeter seal with a good liquid sealant and see if it improves. Does anyone know what this part is called, the part #, or where to find it? Process photos below.
