leaky jeep

alright...so i'm used to the little leak that I have on the passenger's side when it rains or when i have my ac on. I'm cool with that...well, mostly cause it's on the pass. side. anyway, I was driving home tonight in the rain and it was raining on my left foot....right where it rests in front of the clutch. anyone else have this problem, or am I on my own to find the leak and fix it?


also....the coolest thing ever...I have my window rain-x'ed and a big ass bug went *SPLAT* on the windshield and what was left of the bug slid all the way up the windshield till it blew off of the top. very cool looking. kinda sick tho.

Move to Arizona. It never rains here.

Seriously though while I have never paid much attention to any kind leaky raining problems. I would assume that is coming in somewhere from the vent on the hood. I would wait til it's dry out and then take the hose to it and see if you can duplicate the problem.

ya know....i've thought of moving out there. sunshine almost all the time...i think i could handle that. i was hoping someone knew where it was coming from so i wouldn't have to do a hose/bucket thing.

I am not sure about this, but I think I remember hearing that the drain in the bottom of the intake of the TJ's are prone to plugging up. If you find the drain hose/hole in the bottom of your intake (that is there so that you don't pump water in when it rains) and clean or replace it, you should be all set! If I remember right, it is on the passenger side closest to the back of the Jeep. Hope this helps some...

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Ditt0!!! I am having the same prob. with the 99 TJ. In my search I found this. I have not yet done the repair but will. This what the guy says: "The main prob. with the AC drain is that it allows water to run back on the underside of the tube and into the cab. The cure for this seems to be installing a section of hose to the end or a 90* fitting to redirect the water. He used a 90* brass fitting and a few inches of 3/4" OD x 5/8" vinyl tube. It may be the answer. Good luck
