    Put a bead of silicone around the door boot where the wires feed through for the door. That's where my leak was and it looks just like your photo, it fixed mine for over a year.

    Glad you didn't try this.. if you're talking a closed cell automotive foam, that's one thing.. but if you were talking about regular spray foam insulation, it's open cell and retains water..therefore not the best solution for a water leak

    appreciate the info

    Nah..I didn't do it. thanks for the info....it has been dry since doing all of the above items..when I put the plastic panels back on I put some silicone around each tab that went into a hole and I am hopefully done with it. :happy107:

    Fixed mine. We had a full day of rain this week, no leak. Glad I found this thread.

    this thread is relevant to my interests. found water in my weathertek mat the other day, after several straight days of rain of various quantities. I had the windshield replaced earlier this year, and up until this month the jeep got to live indoors (don't ask; long story, lost my fight with the town and my "shed" is gone. so the jeep is outside now for the time being. :( ) I'll have to pull the cowl back off and check that filter area, as I had removed it while the windshield and cowl were out/off. bet it's not sealing right.

    I'm glad I found this thread. I've been dealing with a sporadic leak for a couple years now, I've narrowed it down to the upper passenger side of the windshield and the door seal, as the water coming in is leaving small pools in the A-Pillar cover. I'm busy this weekend, but will definitely be checking these spots out next weekend.

    I just resealed this screen aka Cabin Filter. The old gasket is actually foam tape. I dont think this foam was ever meant to hold back water.

    I noticed near the fender there was a passage blocked with debris. It's all clean now so no water should build up and enter the screen. But this screen is definitely a place for water to enter the cabin if large amounts of water come by here. So No your Jeep is not a Motor Boat!

    I used silicone to seal it up. Hopefully I don't ever have to remove this screen again cause it will probably break apart before I get it off.

    I hope this is the reason for a wet passenger floor. Otherwise Less time for me to enjoy my weekend!

    Thanks for the Post!

    Hopefully your throw away the weather striping/"Gasket" clean it up and just use silicone!
