2015 JKUR and Not Happy!

Drove my 2010 JKR for over 3 years without a single water leak, have my 2015 JKUR that cost me $10K more for a month, and the passenger side carpet is soaked. Drying it out, but it already has that funky wet carpet smell. I can't find any flattened or cut seals, haven't run the A/C, and live in the desert, seems the only place there is water is under the carpet on the passenger side of my Jeep. Other than that, I absolutely love the Jeep, and don't mind eating all the crow about never owning a 4 dr.

It appears to be coming from the door, and the passenger door doesn't seem to close as tightly as the driver's side door. With have to take it in next week.

Have you removed any part of the top?

If so reinstall it carefully again. If not then it was not properly installed by the dealer (the remove them some times to show case) or the the factory. Remove the Freedom Panels, just loosen the back top. Make sure the back seated properly and perfectly square. Lube all the seals on the front and carefully install one F-top at a time.

Leaks are not uncommon and the vast majority are in the front and they are due to improper installation. Read some of the existing on the subject. They have all sorts of good tips.

Sounds like a bad door seal.....or a badly INSTALLED door seal. Should be an easy fix. I had the same problem on an '11.

I just replaced my passenger door seal.
I PM'd MoparOnlineParts .. and was told the latest revision.
There was multiple superseding part numbers on the site.
Installed, I still get a couple drips. prob due to my older soft top. Previously a good rain soaked the floor/seats and dash.

It goes in Thursday. First thing I did was read the threads here, then checked the Freedom Top installation, which I noticed seem to have more seal material than my 2010. I have always removed the tops when the weather is nice, since I can't remove the whole top due to storage. Just frustrated, wouldn't care if I didn't have carpet, wouldn't have carpet if it weren't for my wife, probably couldn't afford a Jeep if it weren't for her, so, have to do something.

Recently bought a 07 jk soft top 4d. Removed doors and top saw flattened foam seals. Replaced all foam seals installed new door hinge bushings. Before all foam was replaced the carpet LF, and all REAR seat carpeting was soaked. Removed drains sun dried all carpet disinfected and dried floor boards. Water tested after foam was replaced and still leaking from b-pillars or the framing between front and rear doors on both sides. Headed to the dealer tomorrow 10-09. Any ideas so I don't get screwed??

Loosen the top door hinge and move it in 1/4 of an inch and re-tighten hinge. This little trick seems to have solved my door leaking problems.

I've got the same thing on my driver's side, so may or may not be the same thing. I took it to the dealer last week and they've ordered parts but couldn't tell me what they ordered... I'll find out next week.

FMXGIRL88-

You may have already done this, but I'd do like the guy did in the above linked thread and find out exactly where the leak is coming from, then go from there. There's also a sticky here to help with leaks.
