Does anybodys new JK have have a water leak with half doors?
My 2012 Jeep wrangler 2 door with half doors is at my local dealership with a water leak on the passenger side door. The dealer says that they are unable to fix my water leak because the half doors are to flexible. The leak is where the top of the window frame meets the side of the soft top frame. The drivers side does not leak at all. The dealer and Jeep want to remove my half doors and have authorization to install new full doors to fix my water leak. One of the reasons I ordered this Jeep new is because I wanted half doors and not full doors. Does any body else have a water leak problem with half doors?
Maybe you should take the full doors, and see if they can sell you the leaking half doors at a discount...then you can work on them on your own. And if you get them sealed up, you could sale the full doors (or keep them for winter).
I decided to keep the half doors. The dealer has a factory rep coming in tomorrow to make body adjustments. They claim that when they adjust the door striker in the leak goes away. I noticed and the dealer noticed that the right door sticks (not level) out beyond the front fender. I am worried now that adjusting the door hinges could damage the paint.
My passenger front has always leaked a little. I usually take the front carpet out to let it dry every now and then. I still like my half doors. Never bothered taking it to the dealer though figured it would be a waste of time and gas.
