  1. water on passenger floor after rain

    update: jeep went to the dealership on December 30th and I got a call about 5 hours later stating that a fella by the name of “the water doctor” had found the leak and fixed it. He said the mucket seal had come unseated and it looks like he glued it back and put some RTV around where the two...
  2. water on passenger floor after rain

    Update: There is no update. The winter storm last week derailed my appointment and I haven't gotten word yet on when it's going to be rescheduled for. I called the dealership ahead of the storm and booked another appointment on the 30th in case mine is was cancelled, so it looks like that...
  3. water on passenger floor after rain

    I’ll absolutely let y’all know if that’s what ends up being replaced by the dealer before you spend $150 on a piece of rubber. Anyone know what kind of adhesive is used to hold it in place/what would work best?
  4. water on passenger floor after rain

    I’ve now got an appointment wit CMA’s valley CDJR on the 16th. They’ve been pretty gracious so far and said they actually do use an outside company to find leaks. That’s what I was told by the Charlottesville dealership as well, but it turned out not to be true. We will see how it goes. By...
  5. water on passenger floor after rain

    Update: it rained last night and I had some time to take a look at the Jeep. I pulled the carpet and a few trim panels and took a good look around. I can now confidently say water is coming in at the bottom of the passenger door. Everywhere else in the tub was dry, including where the...
  6. water on passenger floor after rain

    I agree. I think the plan going forward is to take it to the next closest dealership. I just don’t see a path forward with a dealership that isn’t willing to put the time into finding where water is coming in. Jeepcares asked me to let them know if I take it there and I think they will kind...

    Dealership just called, they gave up and just dried the interior.
  8. water on passenger floor after rain

    Is it possible that if the Jeep is pointed downhill and all the rainwater from the roof rushes forward down the windshield towards those drains it just naturally overflows? When I was trying to diagnose the leak I wanted to pull the wiper arms and the cowl cover off but the wiper arms were...
  9. water on passenger floor after rain

    Yep, those are the threads I was looking at during the wait time for the dealer appointment. I looked at the seam under those A pillar cowl panels and they looked ok but it’s probably worth hitting them with RTV anyway especially at this point. I thought the Mucket seals on the door looked...
  10. water on passenger floor after rain

    While I was waiting for my appointment I tried to rule out drain tubes. I took that A pillar cover off both sides and put my shop vac on the hose. I felt really good suction on the other end I I figured that was the issue. When I was on the phone with the dealership yesterday I did also ask...
  11. water on passenger floor after rain

    I mulled it over for a little while and ended up calling a Jeep customer service and talking to them for a while about the whole thing. They seemed to agree that all dealers are certainly not created equally and suggested I head over to CMA in Staunton and give them a try. Gave me a case...
  12. water on passenger floor after rain

    Yeah, but I picked the JL up used about a year ago and got a great deal on it. Didn’t leak back then. I’ve never lowered the windshield also. Not sure how or why the leak has developed. I’m alarmed at the dealers apprehension to pull off trim panels.
  13. water on passenger floor after rain

    So I heard from the dealership this afternoon. Again, they can find no evidence of any leak. They put the rear end on jack stands to simulate the hill and sprayed water down it. I told them they must not be spraying enough or not in the right place. They told me that my warranty wouldn’t...
  14. water on passenger floor after rain

    I was hoping to be able to avoid that but I think you’re right. I hear it’s really easy in the JL. Maybe a good excuse to upgrade to bedtred once it’s fixed? I do have 4 dogs and 2 toddlers.
  15. water on passenger floor after rain

    @Heimkehr that sounds like a really good place to start. The dealership said they’re going to work on it more tomorrow and get back to me. If the Jeep ends up coming home without being fixed that’s what I’ll do. It does make sense to me that if the Jeep is parked on a hill much more water...
  16. water on passenger floor after rain

    This is the accumulation after one very rainy day before I got the shop-vac out. I don't understand how they could fail to find any leaks. Pulled about a gallon out of the carpet.
  17. water on passenger floor after rain

    @Heimkehr The door seals seem to be in good shape and look identical on both sides, so I don't think that's the issue. I did spray the vehicle with a hose at one point to make sure the cowl drains were working properly and were draining out just behind the front wheels. They seemed fine. I...
  18. water on passenger floor after rain

    Hey Guys, I've got a 2019 JLU Sport S that's developed a water leak. The Jeep is always parked pointing downhill. I noticed the leak about 6 weeks ago and Made sure the hard top was seated correctly and that the roof drains and cowls were clear. I made an appointment with the dealer service...
