Hey guys my 1990 yj has a hard top and full doors on it and every time it rain sleets or snows It leaks through somewhere and ends up on both the driver and passenger floor. It is most heavy in the center of the floor pans and hugs the indent in the floor for the tranny. It just sleeted and I took pictures to show you where it's landing. Any help or suggestions on where it's coming from and how to seal it up would be appreciated

First thing I would try because it's free is check to make sure your cowl drain is clean and not clogged.

Here's what it looks like. It has a purple line drawn on it in the pic...

If not that I'm leaning toward the seal under the windshield.

If that's sleet that has come from the outside into the inside, it should be quite obvious where it's coming from, it has to be a big gap.

Look at this thread here in the Frequently Asked Questions.

Clean the drain tube in the engine compartment. Mine did the same thing when I first bought it. Mostly when I was turning.

no easy way around this if the above suggestion yields no result.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

I checked the cowl drain and it wasn't clogged but I realized the windshield washer sprayers were off of the cowl I found them in the dash and hooked them back up to the hoses and tightened them down. Could the water and sleet been coming from the holes the sprayers sit in?

Doubt that much sleet came thru the holes.. check the vent tube flapper doors for the outside air to cabin vent

Look at the firewall from the engine side. In particular, look where the big bundle of wires from the ECM come through the firewall. If the ECM has been bypassed (if you have a 4.2), there might just be a big hole there. Water came through mine until I plugged it up. Otherwise, the big rubber grommet might be loose or rotted or something. Look at the other places stuff goes through the firewall.

Fill out your profile so we know what kind of jeep you have.

Could've sworn that I posted this response yesterday.... well, anyways


Pray you don't find this!! Have you checked to see if your top is sealing tight to the windshield frame?
