Passenger side floor SOAKED

I just recently bought a 2010 JK sport and ever since I purchased it the passengers side floor is completely soaked. I took it to the dealer where i purchased it and they said it was a bad seal on the softtop, yet i find it hard to belive because there is no other water marks coming down the door or window. Has anyone else seen this issue, if so what did was done to fix it?

I had the same issue with my 2010 , after three trips to the dealer they finally fixed it I hope, they replaced the cowl seal and all the seals on the passenger side.

Same story here. 2010 Jeep Sport. I only just noticed it this weekend. Cant see where its coming from but the passenger side floor is soaked! Did the cowl and passenger seal repair fix it?

Yup, I have the same issue, 2008 X. Soft top leaks right above where the interior door handle is - depending on how bad it rained, it either just drips on the interior handle - or my mud mats get wet on the floor. Quirky that it's only on one side. Never been able to figure it out. I call one or two jeeps a bad seal - this many people (heard of others too on other boards) - I call design flaw.

Yep, I have it also on my 2007 Unlimited Sahara. It comes from the seal at the top of the passenger door where it meets the a-pillar. I have put more weather stripping on it and it has pretty much fixed it to where my floorboards dont get soaked, but it does still leak. I have a buddy with the same model as me and he said that Jeep fixed his by replaceing the header with a metal one?? He is gonna get me the part number....

I had this problem and at first they adjusted the door and said that fixed it. Nope it didn't work. Next they replaced the rubber seal that goes around the door and so far so good!

My 3rd attempt to get my 2011 jk 2door sport wrangler fix. they tried adjusted passengerside door and swaping the door with a stock door. they replaced all the seals. bent the inside of frame of the door. the jeep is leaking more than before.

does anyone think the cowl seal will help? i have no idea what the seals they have been using. i know its from chyrsler tech dept.

i wounder if the header with a metal one will work? any feed back will be great...
i hate to have my jeep turn into a lemon..... the thought of swaping for another jeep it freaking me out.... might even not get another jeep after all the water leaks...

I hope that all of the engineers responsible for the current Wrangler design were fired. Absolutely no excuse for this much of a problem with leaks, no matter if it's a hard or soft top. You don't see these kind of frequent issues with convertible cars. Hell, they're now doing retractable hard tops on cars and these Jeep morons couldn't even design a couple of removable panels that didn't leak.

Compare the TJ top with the JK. The TJ top where it hits the windshield frame sits on top directing water down the windshield. The JK top sits behind the windshield frame so if you have a bad or ill fitting gasket guess what? The TJ has A top that sticks out over the door frames directing water out over the door frame. The JK has a top that stops short of the door frame and is dependent on a gasket to seal. So yes I must agree The engineers are morons. The entire JK roof is dependent on gaskets. Why? Water is evil and will trump a gasket when it can. Any type overhang will trump water. The JK soft top is a step back. Hopefully the powers that be will see the errors of their ways and go back to directing water away and not depend on gaskets. It's like standing in the rain with a beret or a cowboy hat. We could not have won the west in the rain with berets. Get what I am Rambling about?

2 Leaky JK's

My 2010 JKU was my 5th Wrangler and the first one to leak. It leaked for the entire 12 months that I owned it and was in the dealer 15 x's. At one point it was there for over a month. They never were able to stop the water (on the passenger side floor). Finally Chrysler bought it back and I purchased a 2011 as the replacement. This one leaks too! I have it 3 weeks and its been in the shop once already and has an appointment again on Thursday. It is completely drenched each and every time it rains.

Does the problem exist with the doors on or off? Sorry, couldn't resist.

If it's only on the passenger's side I suspect it has something to do with the seal not being exercised because the door isn't opened as often.

Huh- good points, just installed a soft top on my JK and thought something was odd.

No leaks though ..... Yet

Got to keep the gasket/seals in good shape. What's a good product?

Edit::: realized this is OLD-o well
