Your not going to believe where my jeep was leaking!

I went to the dealership and had them check for my water leak. They discovered it was leaking from the wire harness that goes through the fire wall.
Anybody have the same problem.

Lets see if it leaks now! They said they sealed it .

That's odd... Glad they found it; hope that fixes it!

VW had a weird water leak. The coolant reservoir would crack at the connector & coolant would ride through the connecter & wires. You would need to replace the reservoir & harness

I was in the same boat with my '08 until two weekends ago when I put my freedom top back on because of rain and noticed drips of water coming from the point where the two freedom tops meet each other at the top of the windshield. Perhaps it was the way I reinstalled the tops, but I do my best to make sure they are installed properly and tightened down.

Oh well, it is all part of the experience... Right?

I've seen a thread where the poster used a shim in that area to tighten up the clamp . It's know to leak there.

Google--prepping a hard to for storage, that's how I stumbled on to it.

Uses something like a .08 shim in-between the panels so when it's clamped more pressure is put on the seal

Found a quote

"2. install small pieces of synthetic rubber (shims) on top of the center latch, before it's latched, so it makes the seals do a better job. 0.90" thick."
