Water Leak making pond in the floor

Hey guys, I know that this gets asked often but I can't seem to find the answer to this specific problem. I bought this '02 last week and last night was the first big rain.

This is what I woke up to


Here are some pics of where it appears to me that the leak is coming from.








And where the drip ends up


What do I need to fix? I am literally brand new to Jeeps so I need your help, and with the forecast for the next week giving rain, I need help fast!

The gasket on your fresh air intake is shot or the cowl itself is plugged up with debris like leaves or pine needles etc.

Here is a good writeup on how to fix it

Thank you! I searched around for an anewer honestly! I just didn't know if this was the same thing since it appears to come from the windshield/door/hinge junction

It's true that clogged cowl can cause pooling in the floor board, as can the AC drain. I've had both those issues. But based on your pics I don't think you have any of those issues as it looks to be obviously leaking from one of the weather strips.

Mine leaked just like that and it turned out to be the seal for the soft top where the door surround and windshield meet. Just put a piece of foam doir seal there and that will solve it.

Welcome to the club... I've had a leak on the passenger side since mine was new ('04). Have had the dash apart and tried to find it with a hose and have had the cowl off. Still leaks.
