Angry Hard Top Leaking

Where the freedom panels meet the actually hard top on the driver side corner, it drips down onto the arm rest and I do not know why. I have to keep a towel with me to dry off the water. anyone know why it could be leaking?

Take the freedom panels off and wipe down and inspect the seals and put back in.Dont use the stupid screws in the sound bar, they will cause leaks unless you leave them kinda loose.

I feel you pain, mine started leaking today as well with all this rain. I just cranked the hell out of the two screw in anchors and hoped for the best. I'm going out to check on it in a bit to see how bad it is.

ill try wiping them down and check out where the leak is coming from again. I noticed like a rubber flap that moves and it seems to be coming in from there.

I just went out to the parking lot, took the tops off, wiped them and reset them without the screws. Thanks for the tip viper. I'll let you know how it works.

Mine leaked like crazy, same spot - on the arm rest but on the passenger side, even got the carpet wet under the seat once. I did the same thing - carried a towel and kept it stuffed down beside the seat. I've had mine off and on, inspecting and cleaning. Best remedy was to loosen the sound bar screws, still leaks a little bit though - keeping the towel handy.
