Water in Roll Bar

I did a search on this in the forum and wasn't coming up with an answer that reflected my problem accurately, so I decided to start a new thread.

I have a 2012 2-door Rubicon. Last Friday it got rained on pretty heavy while driving in to work. That evening during my drive home, and on Saturday, I heard a sound of water gurgling. At the moment I dismissed it as air in the heater coil, since that seems to be a common problem.

However, this morning some water leaked onto the passenger door while backing out of the driveway. I was running a bit late, so I didn't stop right that moment to look into it. Then, when I was getting off of the highway in the city, I stopped at a red light and water came out around the passenger screw that installs through the sound bar to secure the roof. When I got to work I opened the passenger door and could see where water was leaking out from a hole in the bottom of the roll bar above the passenger door.

So I am wondering if there is something I did putting the roof back on that may have caused this. Also, how do I address the water that is in the roll bar now? I have had the Jeep for a year and a half, and have never had this problem before.

O.K. I did find another thread where this is being addressed, and my gut feeling is that I have the 2 big screws too tight. That issue aside, do I need to do anything about the water in the roll bar, or will it take care of itself?

If I do need to address it, what should I do?

It's not in the roll bar it's in your freedom top. Take the freedom tops off and at one end there is a tiny drain hole. Not sure of the fix other than draining the water. Anyone know of a real fix.

It was water in the freedom top. I drained it, and no more problem.
