Rear side window\vent leaking?

2000 WJ: I'm getting closer to my leak. My spare tire well has been filling up with water. Couldn't see how water was getting in there. After i washed the jeep this weekend the carpet in the rear driver side, right between the fuel filler hump and the back corner was soaked. Then running into the tire well. HAHA. So is the vent behind the rear side window real or decoration. How is the side window attached? Going to try to remove the interior pieces and hopefully a little silicone will seal things up.

Have the same problem. I removed the rear interior panels off, no luck. Removed and reinstalled and sealed luggage rack and still no fix. I finally gave up and just learned to live with it. I'm leaning towards the rear vents, just haven't had the patients to remove them yet. Frustrating.

The vents are real. I think they are clipped on. But behind them there are little rubber flaps. Also, the vents on the sides of the tail lights are real. If you take off the tail lights you can see the vents. Let me see if I can find how you remove the vents behind the window.

Edit: Here you go.

same problem, 99 GC, my leak is coming from the rubber seal around the rear window, then comes down behind the panel (right by the latch to the window) all the way to the floor and ultimately drains in the spare tire well. just tried removing the entire rubber seal, resealed it with silicon and will see how it works tomorrow.....if you're having this problem, I'd recommend removing the back door panel and spraying the back with a hose and see if that is where it's coming from

That D-Pillar is the source of my leak. There is a drain hose that runs from it. When it rains, water leaks in from the D-Pillar but not through the hose. I myself, will attempt to remove this pillar to see how this leak is really materializing.

My 02 wj leaks the same place, but once I had a friend pour a bottle of water along the top of my driver-side back window. 90% of the water came straight into the jeep. I'm not sure what kind of weather-stripping goes along those windows, but basically there must be none!!. I rode around with a strip of black duct tape over that gap for the longest time (obviously looked terrible). Took it off a few weeks ago, had a Hail of a storm last night, woke up with my interior soaking. Can someone please tell me what weather-stripping goes there andthe best way to get to it?
