Leaking soft top around doors
I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler and have owned it for a little over a year. After a very rough winter here in Cleveland I am now having leaking issues with my soft top. It is leaking on the driver and passenger doors. It will drip down directly above the door handles on each side. If there is a good rain I have to ride with paper towels in that part of the door and change them throughout the day.
After a little bit of time so much rain is coming in the sides that my seats, steering wheel, and floors are soaked. I took it into a Jeep dealership to get it checked out by their too specialist and they told me I needed to get it reseamed and a new header. The cost would be $1,300 to do this which is unbelievable. The header is just leading to additional road noise which I can deal with but this leaking at the top of the doors drives me nuts.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?
Do you think if I bought a frameless soft top replacement it will do the trick or still leak in by the doors?
Any ideas are appreciated!
