If windshield was replaced and the cowl not screwed back into place, would that cause rain to go down into the system and ruin the radio? We had windshield replaced but there was a rattling...the first major rainfall, the radio went all staticky and the navigation system went black with white lines..Took it back to windshield people and they realized they never screwed the cowl back in place but said the sunroof caused my problem with the radio...

Well, I had quite forgotten how bad my dash was a couple years back... thanks for the reminder! Did they replace the winshield frame or just the glass? I can't see why they'd ever mess with the cowl seal if it was just the glass....

BTW...my "Navigation System" is only affected when I get dirt or bright sunlight in my eyes... lol!

I just replaced my cowl seal. I have also cleaned out the vent tube in the engine compartment. That fixed my passenger side leak, but I still get water in on my drivers side. Seems to be isolated only to the left side, right next to the bottom left corner of the plastic part of the carpet. Any ideas or past experiences?

I need to do this when I get the hard top off. It's on the long list of things I have parts for but just haven't installed.

Great write up! On my 1992 YJ after a heavy rain, or a good wash when I first take off to drive it and make a turn left or right water comes pouring out on my feet. Haha, I think its time to replace it!

I know this is an old thread but I was wondering where I can get the screws that hold the seal to the bottom of the windsheild frame. Anyone know?

Thanks jbolty! I didn't know if they were something special or not. Hopefully now I can finish up the install.
