leaky roof?

I'm sure someone has already posted this, but its hard to search on my phone.
I'm having an issue where both my doors leak when it rains. It comes somewhere from in the top, but I cant find where, and it drips down the handle on the inside. I get quite a bit of water in there.
Also I appear to have a hole in the back of my top anyone have any quick tips or tricks to repair it properly cuz I really wouldn't want to buy a new top for one hole.. thanks much!

is your weather stripping bad? and for the top you might be able to find a place that repairs like boat sails or car tops and they would probably patch it for you. Or you can use duct tape

That's the thing, all the weather stripping checks out fine. That's why I can't figure out what's going on. Lol and of duct tape will work. I'll give it a go! Lol if not, I do have a place near me that repairs boats and stuff

Yea, I should probably just embrace it. It didn't bother me at first but a wet butt every time it rains gets old. Lol

haha i know the feeling. i just got to thinking, is it coming from the corner of the door? it could possibly be coming from your windshield header and run down to the door

I had the same thing happen to me on both sides. I found it was from the rubber weather seal being folded up under the door surround and making a small gap. Once I straightened that up it hasn't leaked since.

Mine seems to be fine. Like look wise I can't see anything wrong with it. I compared it to my friends jk that's the same year. Looks the same but mine still leaks
