Dealership actually fixed my leaking hardtop. Very happy about that. I will keep this though. Thanks.

Knock on wood, no issues on my 07 so far.

You would think Jeep would learn from some of this since 2008 and change up some of the plugs to prevent some of these leaks..

Where was your leak and what did they do to fix it?

rangerman75 10-24-2012 09:43 AM

Have not had much rain but so far the dealership repair seems to holding. The leak was in the center of the two freedom panels towards the rear. It seems that it was behind the gasket and all they did was add some more of the black sticky crap behind the gasket (butyl) The repair manual seemed to point to older models and really did not help me. I will still apply 303 to all gaskets. Will see if it holds.

Mine is the dreaded passenger door allowing water to run into floorboard soaking the carpet.

Jeff Loughlin 10-26-2012 08:34 AM

Thanks for this. I have a leak above my passenger side door that I haven't been able to fix yet, so maybe something in there will help. It drips onto the door handle and then splashes all over the passenger seat. My short-term fix was to velcro a sponge to the top of the door handle housing to soak up the water as it drips down, which prevents it from splashing onto the seat - that works great, but it would be nice to not have to wring out the sponge every time it rains...

Need to pull out the carpet or plugs? Here are some links that could help
 
For people that have serious water issues, I have a thread that goes over how to remove your carpet in a 2DR. I would think unlimiteds are about the same. It also shows with pictures where the drain plugs are in the 6th post.

THREAD LINK->Carpet Removal 2012 2DR

DIRECT POST LINK->THE 12 DRAIN PLUG LOCATIONS 2DR
-2 on each Front Foot wells
-Under Front Seats
-Behind Front Seats where back seat passengers would put there foot
-Small ones in the rear recessed mount area for the back seat
-Under the Jack and in hidden storage area

The first link sent me to a site that appears to be written in Czech or Slovak.
Didn't go any further.

Same here...I too have the passenger door leak. Seems like it's coming in between the door and A-pillar somewhere in the middle and then leaks down the trim moulding beneath the glove box and into the foot well, soaking the carpet. It seems like it's gotten better since new, but still something to make my OCD needle peg whenever I see it.

There is a button that switches to English. It appears to be a European forum of some sort.
