Help!!! jeep getting flooded when it rains

Hi guys

My YJ is leaking water in the passenger side (Jeep is UK RHD), it is getting wet behind the passenger seat and on the side of the tub, it is getting very wet. The roof is a factory hard top, I have noticed that there are no seals between the roof and tub, anyone give me any ideas where i should start looking

Cheers guys

Replace your windshield cowl seal. Replace your possibly non-existant hardtop seals. Two run along the bed rails of the tub. One runs across the top of the windshield frame.

Cut some drain holes, keep up with the rust.

Ive read something about the vent things clogging up and that will fill up with water and dump in the cab too.

Check the black rubber sock looking thingy hanging next to your battery tray. It is likely packed with mud. Clear it and see if your problem goes away.

The write up from the FAQ's cover's a large majority of where water can come in. Although I had water coming in through the body seals just behind and below the actual cowl. I was painting / bedlining the entire jeep at the time so I dug out all of the old sealant put new in and coated over it.
