My truck used to leak when it raind. Ford must have not have sealed the windshield good enough because water was coming in from the top left corner and running down A-Piller or what ever its called and getting everything wet. most of the water coming in i couldn't see it either because it was running down behind the molding. so i just took air hose and sprayed along the windshield striping on the outside and felt air coming inside and just silicone it off and haven't had a leak since.

The primer on a lot of ford trucks are junk so it might not be just the silicon it could be the primer that the silicone sticks to take it to a windshield shop and they can reseal it for like 50$ and it will be done the right way

ISSUE
The customer may report a water leak from the windshield. This may be caused by a skip or a void in the production sealer somewhere around the periphery of the windshield.

ACTION
Apply a bead of Liquid Butyl Sealer (F8AZ-19554-CA) under the weatherstrip around the periphery of the windshield. Refer to the appropriate Service or Workshop Manual for weatherstrip removal where necessary.

NOTE DUE TO DIFFICULTY IN DETERMINING THE EXACT LOCATION OF A WATER LEAK, IT MAY BE IDEAL TO SEAL THE ENTIRE WINDSHIELD PERIPHERY (SIDES, TOP AND BOTTOM) TO ENSURE REPAIR OF THE LEAK
