Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

While driving a semi passed me and then I heard a thumping on the roof of my Jeep. I pulled over and found that the seal at the top of the windshield had partially come loose. I put it back in the groove, but it has failed to stay. Do I need to put some type of adhesive on it?

You need a new bead as the screen is an integral part of the roof strength in the event of a rollover

I had water coming through my sun visors this morning after a heavy rain. Where is it coming from? I don't have a sun roof.


The car is too new to have rust issues along the top edge of your roof so it must be a problem with the seal around the windshield. Look at the top of the windshield and see if you can see any kind of damage to the black rubber seal along the top of the wind shield. There may have been a rock or something hit it allows water to enter along the top edge of the windshield. If this is the case the roof lining will must likely also be damp. Hope this helps.

Rain comes in and sloshes around the floor in right back seat area. Not sure if it is from after-factory installed sun roof, windshield, or rear window. I've heard that there is a product you can shoot...


Often just like a roof leak in a house, you have to look into the places you wouldnt think of. Could be a leak from the sun roof going down the inside of the roof and down the side to the floor. Does the hatch have a leak in the seal? Sometimes you can have a drain plug up that will let the car pool up. Does the sunroof have a catch pan and drain tubes. My prelude (factory sun roof) had plugged drains and leaked. If you find that you have a leaky Window, DONT USE SILICONE!!! The acids in the silicone will blister your paint and make your car rust. If the rubber (Im assuming that you or someone reading this may have some rubber seals on their car) is pliable enough they make a glass seal that is to seal the glass to the rubber.

Hope this helps some... Dale

I have water leaking in from above thru the electronic console, wondering if it might be coming from the roof racks? I also have water coming in on the drivers side floor and can't find the leak, any...


More likely is a leak at the windshield seal at the top of the windshield. The water on the floor could also be coming from around the windshield, water leaks travel anywhere they find a path. On a dry day, take a garden hose and with very little water flow, apply the water to the top of the windshield for a while. Check for water on the floor. The water that's getting into your electronic console is probably happening at speed.

Water on pass side floor every time it rains think air vent plugged looking for a drain for air vent


check the windshield posts from the inside remove the front a pillars then poor water over the windshield edges accross the top of the roof. Sometimes rust forms between the windshield urethane and the metal surface where the windshield seals. If you see water coming down the post you need to check all the roof seam sealer points for pinholes and under the windshield urethane. You can do this next time you change your windshield. Next check for leaves stuck in the drains of the cowl venting and make sure the drains are free to drain.

When it rains the drivers side floor board is wet. It is not leaking from the roof.


Hi,
it sounds like your windshield seal is perished.
Try pouring some water onto the windshield rubber seals from the outside and see if you can find the leak.
There are several commercial windshield rubber seal repair glues out there which you can use to fix it. Try an auto or hardware shop.
It is also possible that the water is coming thru the car body so try removing the plastic kick panels around the drivers foot area and have a good look for rust.
The worst case scenario is that there is a hole from possibly rust from under the area where the dashboard meets the top rear section of the engine bay area.
Cheers,
Steve

I have a 2003 t-bird with water leak


sorry to hear about your car problems

4 things come to mind.
1.) has the car been wrecked and repaired, if so the doors may be out of adjustment.

2.) faulty door deals. the rubber seal that goes around the doors.

3.) a bad windshield installation or seal. if the windshield seal is bad it could allow water in at the top which could run between the cars metal roof and the fiberboard interior roof.

4.) bent doors

if the car has never been wrecked and the doors have never been removed then you can pretty much count out 1 and 4. check the door seals for tears or missing or flat sections. if they are intact then you may want to try pouring some water around the top of the windshield and check for leaks.

just some ideas. hope this helps, have a good day.

Rain water leaks from overhead console (No sunroof)


common problem with these roof racks check for loose bolts holding it on also there are inserts pressed into your roof under the roof rack these threaded insrts tend to come loose or get pulled out use silocone sealant around every bolt and insert.

Jeep wrangler driving with soft top windows open


Yes soft top jeeps can be very loud. Honestly your probably better off just leaving the top off. No matter what you do to the jeep it is not going to be more streamlined.

check this site out from nasa it explains aerodynamics pretty well.

http://www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/5-8/features/what-is-aerodynamics-58.html

The problem with jeeps and aerodynamics is they are completely flat in the front they are a giant wind sale. The drag created by air inside of the cab is going to be no worst than the drag created with out it.

When it rains my information center located in the middle roof leeks really bad


The two options for the leak will be the antenna seal to the roof or the windshield just forward of the information center.
Does it leak only when your driving or will it leak when the vehicle is setting in the driveway?
If it is leaking when setting in the driveway, I would suspect the antenna seal.
If it leaks while driving, check the windshield seal.
You can use a garden hose to isolate the leak.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
