I've owned 4 GC's. Except for the 94, all ( 98,99,01) have all suffered the same problem... that makes me a life member of the Wet Floor Club!... FYI... there is a drainage pipe that extends out from the fire wall ( engine side ) just on the other side of the heater core area. When it clogs, you will have the same problem... On my 99 GC, a simple 4" plastic tube used to extend the pipe, worked... For any V6, the fix is easy. For any V8, seek professional assistance. I hope this is your quick easy fix!

I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee, and have had no problems with leaking, other than not getting the moon roof completely closed. But I did have a 1981 jeep cj5 renegade that leaked bad . And it took me awhile to figure out the problem was. It turned out that the windshield gasket (TOP) was leaking inside the windshield and running down both sides under the dash.
I ended up taking clear gasket sealer (silicone) and a small straight screwdriver for this job. first I stuck the screwdriver between the gasket and the windshield frame,pulling back slightly not to tear the gasket. There was muck and dubree between the gap,so I cleaned it out first. A good paper towel will do the job ! Slide the screwdriver across the top of the windshield underneath the gasket in one hand and the paper towel pinching the gasket down as far as possible into the gap. Remember not to force anything,you don't have to.
Now, after you have cleaned the underside of the gasket, let it dry a few minutes to evaporate any moisture left from the towel. Now it's time to apply the silicone.
With the screwdriver,starting at either side of the windshield start it under the gasket,pulling it back enough to keep a steady stream of silicone and move across the windshield at your own pace ,keeping the silicone under the gasket and a solid bead of sealer . Make sure there are no gaps in the silicone, then let it dry over night, you should have no more leaks. This can be done to any windshield with a gasket that can be pulled back and cleaned without tearing the gasket.
I hope this helps someone, it solved my problems !

I have had my jeep in 7 times in the past two months for the same water leak and they are telling me that they can not find where the leak is coming from. It is leaking from under the sunglass holder, on the passenger handle bar and on the passenger side in the back, however, it never leaked in the back of my vehicle until they tried to fix the problem about 6 times ago. It is still under warranty but today they told me they may have my car for 3-4 weeks this time. Has anyone ever had this type of on going issue and if so, how was it resolved? I am very very upset with the service I have received.
#19 of 39 water leaking behind my glove box
Mar 10, 2011 (1:41 pm)
I recently bought a used 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I bought it I noticed rust stains on the inside of the cabin only near the floorboard and under the seats. The snow on top of my jeep recently melted and I woke up to a huge puddle of water on the passenger side. Could my problem be a leak in the weather stripping or drain for my sun roof? If so how can I fix this? I do not want to become a member of the wet floor club.

I'm working the same problem after Sunday's rain. I was driving in a torrential downpour and water started leaking into the carat the sunroof. I think my sunroof drain plugs are blocked and the leakage gets in and drips on one side of the car or the other depending on the slant of the road/car when it's being rained on. Any luck with your problem?

I have a 2004 Grand Cherokee also and it has NEVER leaked! I am in Florida and it rains a lot here, in torrents! So, make sure your areas around the doors, firewall and rear door hatch are clear of debris and dirt and you won't have a problem. A small bottle brush comes in handy. Many times your "leak" is from a plugged air conditioner vent causing the AC exchanger to leak on your rug instead of venting uner the car. Its called maintenance.

I read all of the posts and set out to find why my passanger floor was wet. I cut out my carpet and took out the passanger seat. I dried out the carpet after finding the issue. Under the glove box is a condensor drain that is used to take away condensation from the A/C. This plasitc part channels to the engine compartment out thebottom back. Pop the hood and look in the area of the glove box. You will find a little orifice that looks like a little drain. This may be cloggeg. Blow a little air inside ot stick something in there to free it up. Problem solved!

Have a 2005 Jeep Grand, 5.7 Hemi, fully loaded, all the bells and whistles. Continual problem with the sunroof drains getting clogged. Had them flushed by the dealer and it only lasts for a while and then the problem comes back again and again and again... Very annoying since the water drains down the pillars on the pass side and the floor gets soaked. Now my question is what else is being damaged behind the dash that we cannot see???? Just recently my diagnostics panel has been what appears to be glitching. Hit a pothole the other night and something bizare happened; every light that could possibly come on, came on. Not only did the lights come on the dash but they began flashing along with my headlights! Ever try driving in the dark with headlights flashing?! So, wondering if the water could have damaged some of the electrical components behind the dash? Took the Jeep in for this problem and they could not get it to repeat the problem. They tell me that I have 20 different codes in this particular vehicle....

I experienced the same problem with my father's 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo. Water leaking onto the passenger floor during a rain storm. I traced it to the drain tube for the sun roof that runs down behind the interior trim on the passenger's side A-pillar. It was broken and all the water draining from around the sunroof was running down inside that trim, through the dash and onto the floor. The tube is made of very brittle plastic. It cracks and breaks off with only minor effort. I went to Home Depot and got some clear vinyl tubing and replaced the broken part.

Hey saw your post my grandfather has a 2004 grand Cherokee Laredo and when he makes a left turn in rain you hear water splashing on something then water drips in from under the glove box. I looked for that drainage line next to the heater core lines and I can not find it. If you can help it would be great thanks.
