The Leaky Cauldron

So I got my Jeep out for the first time in a big rainstorm and have a few drops of rain getting into the cabin by the passenger window. I'm sure this isn't uncommon. Anyone have any suggestions for remedying this? I have the hardtop installed.

Don't get me wrong, it's not leaking like a sieve or anything...just a few occasional drops.

303 Aerospace Protectant is better. This is what I use on all my door and top seals as well as my interior.

You should be able to find it in town or on Amazon.com

Mine leaks in the front upper corner. A little bit of silicon grease applied to the rubber door seal stripping seems to do the trick.

I'll look into this. It is the passenger's side the leak is coming from.
