Hardtop leaks at rear window


I have a 2001 Wrangler with hard top. The rear glass does not fit snug with the seals on the driver side. The tailgate looks like it is lined up correctly and the seals look to be in pretty good shape. Any ideas on how to snug things up? Thanks!

In reading through instalation instructions ('m looking to buy a HT), it seems the first thing you need to do is to measure the length from the windshield to the back lip of the tub/tailgate area. I think for my '02 TJ, the measurement is suppposed to be 75 1/8", I think -- on both sides. That's standard across all tops I believe. But, if not correct, you can loosen the windshield and move it until both left/right sides are the proper measurement, then re-tighten and install your top. Could be -- just a guess -- that your left side windshield needs to be adjusted. If not exact, your top may not seat properly. Again, just something to look at. Good luck!
