Hello,

New Jeep owner here. I noticed that there was some water seeping through the high pressure wash. Wondering if any one else has experienced or if something to bring up to dealership?

Thank you!

Hard top. Not pouring in, but definitely some droplets coming through.

Mainly driver side doors. From where the handles are to the base of doors. Splash of water felt at the back of bicep and ankles. Lol crappy description.

Agree. Saying through the handles? If so, no. Around the door seals? Do they look good, any gaps? The few leaks I've heard are around the freedom panels not seating properly or the seal around the rear window. Can you duplicate with someone outside blasting with a hose?

I've gone through all sorts of car washes (I know, I know) when my hardtop is on. Never had any water intrusion. I do get a couple of drops now and again when I go through a touchless wash with my soft top.

I get some in from the rear doors near where the latch is. Also some in through the vent in the tailgate.

My jk sometimes gets a few squirts in at the door seam where the hard top meets the tub. I don’t really worry about it because in real world situations, you’ll never encounter rain like that.

Brought my Willys in for manual-flash recall today and pointed out to tech that I get actual spray inside of vehicle at both passenger doors. Touch-less carwash. Also dribbles in at hatch corners. On doors It comes in at latch where roof meets door and body. Not sure on back. They inspected and said back looks messed up, but ordered seal for both rear doors and back. Definitely annoying, but plan on having that top off anyways once it hits 50 here in MI....
