Before everyone says it’s a Jeep it leaks. I have drove nothing but wranglers since 2000. I have had hardtops since 2015 never water roll down inside back window when it rains. Has sensors on inside window worried will ruin them. Little water part of a Jeep but sensor getting wet worries me. Anyone else have this problem month into your 2019 like me.

Are you getting any rattling from that back window?

There was just another thread on this. I had a drip come in so i cleaned the gasket really well. Then used a silicone gasket cleaner / lubricant on it, coated and wiped it off a few times to get it really well. I have not noticed any more leakes coming in so far.

Some said when the doors shut the pressure pushes the rear window a bit causing a drip here and there.

Have you opened the back window when it is wet? If you do that water runs inside the window and when you close it runs down the window.

I had the same issue with my 2019 JLUR. Take it to the dealer and have a water specialist look at it. They replaced the rubber molding around the rear (that’s attached the hardtop) and it’s perfect now.

I have the same issue and the dealer said it is common and they have a gasket kit on order for me. Happy to hear it works.

My 2018 does this as well. It's random. I can go through a powerful craws with it that's the pressure is so hard it damn near makes me def going through it and no water will get in. Let it sit out in the rain and water comes in there. Who knows. I'll have them look at it when I have to take my jeep in for something.
