Default 2016 f250 water leak

Well i have not been around here for quite a while but wanted to ask yall your opinions..
My 2016 f250 Lariat cutrently has 13,700mi and i bought it new.
Noticed a musty smell this spring, finally found the front passenger floor wet.
Source is a leak from the upper cowl area.
My dealer is going to take care of it but the issue is their methods.. looks like thry tried to just spray a ton of undercoating in behind the fender and had no luck. Just made a mess. They are having me bring it back next week to have the fender removed..
I had to demand the moldy carpet get replaced but honestly want them to cleannoff all the nasty undercoating.
Am i wrong for expecting the job to be done right or am i off my rocker?

If I paid 60 grand for a new truck, they would for sure be fixing it right and be replacing the carpet. There is no way I'd have something half assed on my new truck.

Unless that was a ford approved thing then i would absolutely tell them it needed to be removed.

Bandaid repairs on a brand new truck? No thanks.
Ford will pay them to put a new carpet in if it stinks. Don't feel bad, you didn't break it. Does it have a sunroof?

No sun roof on this one..just cab lights..
the water is definately coming in the cowl or a-pillar area since i did not spray water any higher when i was testing to find the leak.
Sadly i may have to take off work to get my point through to the body shop manager.
