Rear window with slider leaks

Depends on where it leaked at . If you have a slider than can be the seal on it , or if whole back window then you could have a bad seal or a rusty area beside the rubber seal that would need fixed . If neither then a seal is most likely your problem . Some people puts alot of vasaline on them to make them swell to see if it still leaks and others just do a small cut on clear caulking then lift the rubber up and trace around the window and clean up any that sqeezed out but my preferance is to remove the back window and look for rust and fix it right the first time .

My transfer case is leaking and I'm not sure why.

Sounds like a bad seal to me. That is the most likely problem. If you replace the seals you should replace all seals and gaskets at the same time since you have already gotten in apart and this will keep you from having to turn right around and disassemble again when there is another issue later. Best to do it while it's already apart since it will save time and trouble in the future. If this does not help you I apologize.

Need to find a way to put in a rear main seal in my 1989 jeep cherokee 4.0 without pulling the transmission

The Rear main seal on a Cherokee with the 4.0L is a 2-piece seal and the transmission doesn't have to be pulled. You have to remove the oil pan and rear main cap. That's it. The transmission doesn't have to be removed. Hope this helps.

Best of luck

Water leaking into passenger side floor

The drain hose probably came off the air conditioner, or plugged up. It will be on the firewall on the passenger side. May have to get under car to see it.

Rear Seals Blown Out

The rear seal can be replaced but not without pulling the transmission, then you remove the seal holding case knock out-the seal and find the number on the seal and buy one and replace it and the gasket to the seal holder, also buy a speedy sleeve for the crank or you will find it leaking again.

Air Leak

GM had a bulletin regarding this several years ago. There can be an air leak from the cowl into the heater box. You need to remove the trim on the cowl by the wipers. Under that you find a oval shaped metal plate that is sealed with caulk on the pass side. You need to scrape the caulk off and with a chisel break the plate loose and remove it. Inside of that is a passageway that supplies air to the heater. The seam inside that passage is leaking and allowing cold air to come in behind the glovebox. Seal the seam up with caulk, or sealant. I have used the sticky alum foil tape. It's a little easier to work with. Doesn't have to be pretty. Replace the cover and hold it down with a couple sheet metal screws and recaulk around the edge.
