leaky rear window..

i have a 2009 sarhara unlimited. 2 years now, the rear window (tailgate) has leaked. had it in for warranty work 4 times, still no better. all the dealer has done every time is replace the seals. returning next week for the 5th time. since my dealer obviously has no idea, anybody out there have any guesses?? something i can pass on to the dealer to check out.

Id suggest a lemon law suit friend. Believe it or not rust is applicable under lemon law and you are gonna have it in your tub if that keeps up.

My two bits, and I'm sure you have tried it, but where my windshild wiper box is located, one of the wire/hose connections was being pinched between the window and the seal allowing water to leak in.

So be sure when closing - there is nothing between the seal and window.
