There's a drain located on both the driver side and passenger side, right? They go down into the front fenders. They look clear to me. There isn't some hidden drain tube like with the AC, is there?

See if they are clear by blowing back up them with an air compressor

I do understand what heater cores leak. Plain and simple I just read that something was leaking on the pass. side, saw everyone throwing out ideas, and I threw out mine.

How do I get to them from the other side? I had the passenger fender liner out when I thought the water may have been coming in through my antenna grommet but I didn't see the drain in there.

I appreciate the input. Every little bit of input helps with this situation for me. I'd really like to get it solved.

Lol I did that the other night due to a corner with a stop sign except it was my back bumper to the front of a pt cruiser. I was completely over the bumper almost touching the hood symbol

I've siliconed everything in the cowl. I'm going to mess with it a little today to see what I can come up with. Hopefully I just missed a spot.

I got my Wiper relay to work, thanks to a forum on here.. thought i would share tho- just in case someone is having the same problem.. I had to do this the other night.. couldn't wait for the weekend. and i am glad i did cause its going to rain today. You can see where the connection was blown.









IT WORKED! and it took maybe 20 min! If it lasts, it will make it even better! Thanks for all the help guys!!!

I plan on washing mine today, after I troubleshoot more into my water leak, of course. I went down a road that was under construction in the rain yesterday. They were laying new a new drainage system next to the road so all the vehicles driving on it for the construction got the road all muddy. The Jeep looks like I went mudding.
