Rear - HardTop Leak 04TJ

I seem to have a medicore leak in my rear cargo area. I finally had to remove the rear cargo liner (factory) because the smell was a bit mildew in odor. The problem is, I cannot locate the source of the leak? It's not leaking from the roof however, I did discover a small patch of water on the rear driver's side by the wiring harness for the wipers/third brake light. Has anyone out there exp. a leak of this nature, and if so, where was your source? Thanks!

I had a leak at the rear passenger side of my hardtop...Water was running down from the top and in next to the rear glass. I'm still in the process of finding out if there is supposed to be a metal bracket with a gasket because there are two screw holes right next to the tailgate. I made up a temp. gasket with some rubber and used the screw hole to hold it in place with a couple of small sheel metal screws. It seems to be working but I'd still like to have it "correct." Good Luck!
