I took the carpet out of my jeep because the carpet was rotted out by the stick shift. Then when i looked i noticed the transmission hump panel is not fully bolted to the floor board so there is some air getting in, when i went through water, even when it rains it leaks into the car, i wanted to get ne carpet, BUT i dunno how to fix this, do i have shop do it or do i silicone it myself, PLEASE HELP, i have the carpeting and i want to put the new stuff in but i will have to wait?

Sometimes the plate under the shift boot becomes bent when it's removed for clutch maintenance. The first thing is to make sure that it's straight enough to make a good seal. Another problem is that some of the sheet metal screws could be stripped out, so you might have to go with a bigger size. I think that silicone would be fine for sealing it back up once everything is checked out. There is a seal that is supposed to be there, maybe it's missing or just not working like it should.
