Has it been raining? You going through a car wash? Mine will leak some depending on how bad of a storm we get. I have taken it through a car wash without any though.

First my passenger side was wet, then my driver side was wet. Some days the are some days they aren't. I took it to the dealer yesterday. Their was like 5 other jeeps there waiting for the " leak specialist " I over heard them saying they are replacing the door seals. Idk what year you have but if u have a 12 like mine, you will probably need to bring it in also.

If its not covered, I did put a sham wow under the carpet that seemed to help.

I just got back from the dealer today on my '12 JKU...the new seals are ordered and I'll be back in whenever they come in. I was getting it on my passenger side.

I have had a constant battle against leaking on the passenger side, but never once on the drivers side (which is actually reverse of you guys since I have RHD).

The only problem is we have had so little rain in the last 6 months it takes ages to get enough rain to test if its been fixed or not!

The last fix the dealer did made me laugh. Laugh so hard fact I Just had to take a picture of it!

My 2011 was leaking like this. The second trip to the dealer resulted in new seals which seems to have fixed it. I did a lot of research on this to try to help them.

What is happening IMHO

The water is getting in at the front top corner of the door. It then follows the seal track (the steel channel) all the way down the door. Then as it rounds the corner at the bottom of the door it drains down the seal and on to the plastic door sill. At this point it can go under the plastic or over. The under is the tough one because you never see water. The first fix from the dealer was to put some mastic where first bend is near the bottom of the window sill. This diverted the water inside the door (made it worse). While SeaComms' fix is not very elegant, I think it gets closer to solving the issue.

That front top corner has to be a real pain to seal. You have 3 different interfaces to work with and the roof is dumping water right there. I think that the typical way of hitting this with a high pressure spray is ineffective. Just pouring water on the roof and letting it trickle down is a better way to simulate what is actually happening.

I have some pictures if anyone wants them - PM me.

I know this is an old thread, but . . .

I am posting to this because I didn't think we needed another "water on the floor" thread. :rolleyes:

I have a similar issue with water on the floor on the driver's side. I have an '07 JKU I bought back in September and this is the first time I have noticed this before. I have read this thread and many others and can't find an exact match.:surrender:

As I was cleaning my carpets last Monday (after driving for 4 days with the top off under clear skys), I noticed the driver's side floor mats are wet (main carpet as well as over mat). I pulled all the floor mats out and ran topless for another day and everything seemed dry so I replaced the mats. On a whim, I checked this morning as I got to work and low and behold, the floor was wet. :facepalm:

Here is my dilemma:


  • It hasn't rained here for weeks so it couldn't be a leaky door.
  • I haven't used my AC so it couldn't be condensation.
  • The heater core is on the passenger side as I recall and it's dry on that side.
  • I haven't run through any puddles.
  • This is my first JK, do we have drain plugs?
What else could it be?


:confused:


Thanks in advance.:hide:

I had this happen on a non Jeep and it turned out that a bead of clear silicone along the windshield solved the problem. That seal was compromised and water was leaking down behind the firewall and draining into my passenger floorboards. Didn't seem logical but the fix stopped the leak so who was I to question at that point?
