My Jeep has a large leak in the lower passenger side corner of the rear window / tailgate. It leaked when I purchased it last year but it is still leaking after having my local jeep dealer replace it twice !!! I know it's coming through the rear corner seal because light from a flashlight makes its way through when shining from outside the seal. I have attached images, anyone know a solution? Different corner seal? Adhesive to secure it to the hardtop? As you can see from the last image it was a problem for the previous owner because the sub bracket is rusted.... The first pic is where the water runs in , if you follow the silver screw down to the seal from that point to the corner seal is where water pours in.

Thanks in advance

Agreed

Your seal looks messed up. I would replace it.
That piece of rubber, in the second pic, that is bowed out from the hardtop should be molded and curved against the side of top. I hope that helps, not sure I can explain it better. I'll try to get a pic of mine later.

Pics

Here is a pic of the passenger side. It looks like the seal has to be attached with the hard top off of the jeep. The piece that your pic shows as sticking out, actually fits under the hartop. Hope this helps. If you need any more pics, pm me.

Just fixed it in 5 minutes , thanks a ton for talking the time to send me a pic , saved me a ton of trouble. I wish i would have asked before taking it to the dealer in the first place.
