water !!!!!

my 2000 wrangler is leaking on to the pass. floor board from the dash. i pulled the glove box and fuse box to see it leaking from above, somewhere either from the windsheild or from under the hood... i also noticed where the air conditioning lines come through the fire wall is wet under the hood,anyone ever gone through this kind of fun?

check the drain tubes for the aircon as well as the one under the grill panel by the wiper motor. it is in the centre and often blocks up with crud.

Use silicone to seal around the a/c drain tube (make sure it is not obstructed too), around the fan motor (accessible from the engine side of the firewall), and around the HVAC air input duct underneath the cowl between the hood and windshield.

Finally, place a short rubber 90 degree elbow on the a/c drain tube because wind blowing straight into it as is now can force water up inside it and into the interior.

yeah, mine has leaked alot over the past year. It comes in thru the hvac vent under the panel below the passenger windshield wiper. there is a drain under the hood vent that gets clogged up.

As said above in post #5, the cowl you need to remove is between the hood and windshield, not under the hood.

x2. The 90 degree elbow hose has solved this problem on my last 3 TJ's. I discovered about 1" of water in the passenger floorboard (on hot August day and A/C on MAX). Added the hose and not another drop. Hose goes on the stubby little 1" drain tube that is on the fire wall just below the battery.

Thanks to all for the help.I took off the cowl and plastic air intake for the hvac, and noticed the peice under the intake (actually in the glove box) was way loose and thats what was leaking. I drilled a small hole and reattatched the loose piece with a nut and bolt,siliconed the hell out of everything and havent had a drop since!!! Sorry it took so long to get back and thank everyone
