Water for passanger

To my sad sad sad surprise. I found my front passenger floor wet with water. Took the carpet out & the drains to empty it. Thought maybe my buddy just didn't close it good enough yesterday.

Lucking for me I've had free water for testing all day since it's been raining on & off . And even with mi goof hard close of the door, I still have water coming in. Didn't really get a chance to do much inspecting but it is coming from about the lower area of the door. So... I adjusted the latch of the side a bit back more & hopefully that was it.

Since the guy at the body shop adjusted it forward. Not what I wanted him to do. My door doesn't line up right in the first place & I showed him that. The gap between the door & body...there isn't any, the one closer to the door handle.

Don't know why it's like that. So. Does anyone have this water leak problem? Any ideas on the gap problem too?

under the vent were the whipers are located there is a small vent that goes into the jeep if you can seal that but yet allow it to breath your problem is solved... i think all jeeps suffer from the wet passanger syndrome. hoppe that works for you.

Most leaks on the JK's are caused by the door being to tight. Adjust the latch out c-hair and the problem is fixed. Its been a common problem with the new ones. I work for Jeep and we have seen almost everone come back due to this.

I'll check this out when I get a bloody chance. Since the dealer did not find anything wrong with my jeep. Funny, I was able to do it last night. Hopefully this will fix one of mi problems with it. Thanks!

I actually made it a little tighter & it helped. But I still saw water come from the door seal area.
