If you recently replaced your cowl seal, I would check to make sure it is sealing correctly, and check where the cowl seal meets the driver side door. In that viscinity. Water might be getting in through there somehow.

My Fix

I had a pretty bad water leak on my passenger side. After it rained, there would be a big puddle of water on my floor pan, underneath my rubber floormat that is supposed to catch water. It was very mysterious where the water came from because there was only a teeny bit of water on the actual floormat. I also had some water dripping on the driver's side floormat, coming from the dash area, underneath the light switch. The first thing I did was replace the Cowl seal since mine was rotten and breaking apart. After I replaced it, the leak stopped from underneath the light switch on the driver's side. However, the huge mysterious puddle kept appearing under my passenger side floormat. So I spent some time trying to figure out where the water came from and found two places! Two of the pictures are of the exterior and one is of the interior where I cleaned and used clear silicone to seal where the water was coming in. The 2nd and 3rd picture is where the majority of the water was coming in. One is the exterior and one is the interior of the same area where water was coming in and where I siliconed. I now have no more puddle of water! Check these areas on both sides.

Bren88 I am experiencing the same thing. i have already replaced the cowl seal, cleaned the drain and used silicone at the botom of the windshield. any ideas what to do next?
11-21-2011 10:31 PM
onroad I got the caulking gun type from Eastwood.com. I think any body supply place should have it. The only problem you might have is it only comes in a couple of colors, I got black, and will be painting over it when I get around to painting my Jeep. If you don't plan on repainting the piece, there's not much you can do but get the closest match. I guess clear silicone would work too in that case (can't paint over it which is why I didn't go that route)

haroldpo6 Mine is doing this also. Used water hose to find the rain channel by windshield let water enter the door by mirror. Water then runs down inside door/dash to foor. I just found this out late yesterday, have not fixed yet.
I have all new windshield, gaskets, etc.

There's a bead of panel sealer there, and it gets tiny cracks when it's old.

On mine I couldn't see any cracks even when I looked close, but I ran water just over that seam with a hose and it was pissing right in, bad. I got under the dash with a mirror and a flashlight to track it on the inside, and it was running along a lip on the inside that seam, and dripping down on the drivers side of the hump just to the left of the shifter and pooling in the driver's floorpan. It was also running the opposite way along that lip and dripping down by the passenger side speaker.

I just put a new bead of panel sealer on there and it stopped.
i'll check that out, its just aggravating having wet feet lol

Nubby55 Well mines not a DD, but the rubber seal around the windshield has a small gap in it at the bottom middle and may leak, the only time it's sat in the rain while I've had it, it did not have the door tops on for a 4 day weekend dearing a storm, it was wet all over. cleanest it's ever been in side . LOL

danrunYJ welp i poured water down the vent and nothing, it all came out of the drain. i poured A LOT of water accross the windshield and nothing. hmm
11-19-2011 10:54 AM
danrunYJ i'll probably dump a bucket of water in the vent and see what that does, idk what else to do...
11-19-2011 08:07 AM
alcapon1 dude! I have the same thing, I even put some items down to catch the water cause I thought it was the top, I could not figure why the trays were always empty till now.
11-19-2011 07:33 AM
Scottie Daddy Then I would assuming it's coming out of the outside vent for fresh air in the cab. Where else could it be coming from?

You might want to sit inside your Jeep, and have someone spray some water on certain areas to see where it is coming from.

I would definately check the windshield rubber. If you don't have the cash and never put the windshield down, a bead of clear silicone in between the windshield and cowl would suffice.
I actually did put some silicone accross it and that did nothing
