Major Leakage

I have a HUGE leak on my passenger side door. Its rained for three days straight here and there is standing water under my carpet. Anybody have any idea what could be causing this? Can't get on the stealership's list until Tuesday.

Well i don't think its anything to do with the soft top. I never SEE the water leaking down. It just pools up under the carpet.

At the dealer for the 5th time for the same leak in the same spot can watch the water roll over the bottom of the door fram just aft of the front edge when it rains, seems to be hard to fix, On my fourth loaner car this time all weekend from thursday. Been told here its a manly off road machine engineered for greatness over large boulders if you want leak free buy a (name your "foo foo" suv) but your cahones will shrink to the size of mustard seeds if you do.

Jeep or not, it shouldn't leak. Unless you have the doors/top off

On the first picture, you can see where it leaked for me. Then, you see the good way of placing the rubber part on the upper door seal. The last picture shows the rubber like it was on my jeep before I fixed it (leaking). This was my leaking problem and when I fixed it (by removing and replacing the plastic part rolling the rubber), I now have a leak-free wrangler. (Yay!)

Hmm well mine is leaking in from the bottom of the door. Either that or it is coming through the top and staying in the door frame until it gets to the bottom. Im dropping the Jeep off tomorrow morning so I'll keep those interested posted on how everything turns out.

Just got my 2010 back from being at the dealer for a week. It is the 4th time in for a leak. Mine was leaking at the pass. side bottom, driver side bottom, rear tailgate and driver side rear door. I have had the rear tailgate gasket replaced twice, the gasket on the pass side replaced once, the drivers side adjusted once and now all of the doors and gate was adjusted and the carpets removed and cleaned of mold.

I am to the point that if this does not fix the issue, I will have to get serious and see about lemon law. My 2010 was bought in April of 2011 and only had 7k miles.

I have a 2010 JKU soft top. I got it in early Feb and I had it at the dealer about 4 times for leaks on passenger front floor driver floor and rear left.

They replaced the door seals and a few other seals the first three visits and the fourth time they did front door seals again and they also adjusted the position of the front doors. That worked and I have it had any since.

Good luck!

Yes, it does!

I have to say that the service guy has been really cool with everything. Not that he shouldn't have been, but you know how some are.

Because the water was so deep in the jack well, the jack had rusted, so they replaced the jack and also pulled the carpets. Now I have that nasty shampoo smell in my beautiful baby. I am hoping it will go away soon!

I am thinking one more time and thinking it will be time to ask to get Chrysler involved or my attorney and have them give me a new Jeep. Although, I have one of the Mountain Editions. Not sure how that would work?

Sorry, Ive been busy with summer classes. Any ways, I got the Jeep back on wednesday. The repair order listed about $100 worth of parts. Im not sure where I left the invoice so I can't give the exact parts that were replaced. They guy said they did a leak test and it was leaking from the top right of the door then through the door seal down into the floor board. My guess is they replaced the weather stripping to help with a tighter seal. The next time I get some time I'm gonna wash it and see if it still leaks. Hopefully its all fixed up! Oh, and it was covered by warranty. so thats great!

Thanks for all the help and advice!

They might have put the stiffener in it's you can't tell if they did by feeling the door seals at the top. It will be thicker. So far on mine, they did the stiffener, both front top seals, something along the inner firewall, & scratch the hell out of mi jeep.

Good luck!

Bought my first New Wrangler Unlimited last year. 2011 Hard Top 4 Door. Had it three month, when we discovered the front passanger side floor was wet. Took it into the dealership, got it back the nextday, "All fixed looks like the seal wasnt sitting right". One month later after a heavy down pour...wallla more water. 2nd time back to the dealership. Held Jeep for 3 days. Replaced door seal. Three days later after another down pour...Bingo more water. 3rd time back to dealership 7 days go by, part on order, pick up vehicle after it was fixed. I checked with a water hose. No leak. Two weeks later on I81 heavy downpour, looked over and....wow more water. I pulled over and called the dealership. Took pictures with cell phone and emailed them to the dealership. 4th time back to the dealership. They wanted to keep the vehicle for a day or two to "figure it out". Thats when I came across this site. Read a couple of threat and waited. I got the call, the Jeep is fixed. Picked it up that night just before closing. Got home, pulled the garden hose and let it run for over twenty minutes. To my surprise>>>water! 5th time I dropped the Jeep off back to the dealership the next morning. Oh to there surprise, I'm back. They held the Jeep for 9 days. Had to fly in someone from HQ. Got the call its fixed! Got home, checked with hose, no leaks. OMG its fixed. Nope I was wrong water still came just slower. I take it in on Monday, will be the 6th time. In the mean time got a lawyer, faxed all the work orders. Now I sit and wait. Oh BTW, Hi All!

2 weeks at the dealer and it is back again!

Went to pick up my jeep this morning and it had puddles in the back, leaks in the tower and went carpet in the front. The dealership is just stumped.

I finally decided to call my case manager back and I think they have had it too. There has been about 5k in repairs to my jeep and still no fix. I told her today that I was a patient man, but I am losing my patients quickly. I mentioned lemon and that I really did not want to get a lawyer involved. She said she was calling the dealer to see what they can work out.

Anyone been through this? What is next? How does this work?

Any help is appreciated
Mick
