    I have water dribbling down my a-pillars and resting above the vents. Last night we had heavy rain and my floors are flooded, water went down my dash and into my defroster panels. I always wonder where the hell it is coming from. It comes out between the two a-pillar panels and doesn't seem to start at the top of the pillar?

    It's not a real big deal right now, but its getting worse and worse. I just carry a shamwow with me to soak it off my rubber floors. The soft top is 10000 times worse.

    I had this problem also. I must have been lucky just took one trip to the son of biscuit eating dealership that always want to sell me something. They did finally admit that the "water guy" had submitted ~300$s worth of materials. It looks like I had my windshield reglued, clearly had new stiffer door seals, some foam parts added to the corners and looks like some silicon finger prints around the doors and a pillers.

    least my socks dont get wet as much now.

    yet i still enjoy this dang jeep...

    I had the water guy work on my jeep many times and he can't get it to leak lol. I drive away and a few minutes later water drips down my tailgate window and my a pillars lol. This is with the hard top!

    At first my '10 did not leak (that I could tell), then one day I was washing it and water dripped on passenger side, and some on the driver side. Dealer worked on the weather stripping at top of A-frame.

    No leaking for a while, but now I've discovered wet carpet and dry mats on the passenger side twice in the last couple of weeks -- once after driving on the interstate in a hard rain and again yesterday after the Jeep was sitting out in a light to moderate rain for a few hours. I'll call the dealer the week before my next oil change and have him look at it again.

    Planning on testing myself the next time I wash the Jeep, but I don't know if I'll every have a day that isn't raining and/or cold.

    It appears to be coming from a seal problem somewhere between the top of the A-frame and a little farther down the front edge of the door. This last time water had not dripped onto the door handle as before, but was running much closer to the lower door hinge, then behind the plastic trim at the bottom of the foot well, and onto the carpet.

    Yep that is what mine is doing as well. I will have to pin-point the leak and see if I can get some new seals for it or a at home remedy.

    Do you think it would warrant pulling the drains or even making a new one yourself by that area it comes down to?

    Both sides do it in my '08. I pulled the front corners of the door seals out of the channel, about 3/4 inch top and bottom. Right where it bends.. No leaks and doesn't leak anywhere else....

    Really?? I have to try this! But gotta make sure the seal doesn't come off. You just remove the corner and let it hang instead of sitting in the channel right?

    I just did the front corner toward fronts of doors.. Right were the bend is pulled 3/4 inch on top and 3/4 inch goin down the fronts of windows. So my seal NEVER has came out.. You just want to barely pull out the seal. All it does is makes the front corner seal meet the top of the soft top. The water still runs down the front channels! Was worried abit about water gettin behind seal and rusting door, but with all the rain we've had here in IN no issues!! Will try and take pic!
