Water + Water = A whole lot of WATER!
My YJ is leaking a lot of water around the bracket above the driver side dash speaker. Its coming in the joint where the windsheild frame meets the dash. I have some windsheild frame rust going on but its not terrible by any means. I took a water hose and ran it across the outside area adjacent to where the water is coming in but couldn't duplicate what happens when it rains. I'm wondering if maybe it the windsheild gasket, but it looks fine. I tried running a bead of silicone along the body joint under the windshield frame thinking maybe it was a crack in the seal I couldnt see. Has anyone been through this and discovered where the water was coming in from? The water is so heavy coming in, it pours down the front of the speaker like an open faucet.

Get in the Jeep and have someone douse the whole front of the Jeep with a hose. I assume you've checked the drain tube for the cowl intake already. When that clogs it usually fills with water then sloshes on your feet though. Leaks around the windsheild can rot out the bottom of the frame and it'll leak down on the dash also.

If you have any holes anywhere in the frame the water will come in different places. From the channel inside of the wind shield frame. Right behind the dash pads you have openings that can allow water in not necessary where the leak is.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
