Hi, I have a 98 Regular Cherokee and same problem. Unlike other posts, mine DOES NOT leak due to the a/c or defrost. It will leak:
1) When it's parked
2) Front end facing uphill (it won't do it if it's facing downhill)
3) When it Rains.
4) Passenger side only.
The amount of water is only limited by what the passenger floor will hold! It started doing it in 2010 after no problems in the past.
The only thing I can think of is that there is a tube leading to the firewall and something rusted through. Anyone know what to do?

#31 of 39 2004 Grand Cherokee Drivers Side Wet Carpet
Apr 04, 2012 (12:09 pm)
The carpet on the drivers side floor has started getting wet after a rain. I am original owner and this has started in the last 8 months. Looked at the ideas offered here. This is not an AC problem. Looked at seals on doors and sun roof, they look good. Tried to check any drain channels for clogging, found nothing, but could be missing correct drains. Floor carpet is wet but not down sides of foot area so I don't have a direction that the water is coming from, didn't find any drains in the engine compartment. This is an 8 cylinder. Any other driver side wet solutions out there? Thanks.

Have a 1994 Jeep Wrangler with issues of water leaks that sounds like bath water being thrown out. After a heavy rain when I take off and make a turn either left or right, water falls out from under the dash onto my feet. It's not happening on the passenger side only the driver side. There is no air conditioning. Any suggestions?? We put a new soft top on it late last fall and that is doing well, noisy but it's okay, no leaks. We also had a problem with it overheating. We replaced the thermostat, water pump, a small module on the water pump, then checked out the heater core, replaced the thermostat again (found out it was defective) and now I barely have any heat. The thermostat will register 150 to 195 and drops back down to 150 again. It's not overheating anymore, but I would like to have heat for the upcoming fall and winter.
#33 of 39 leaking on drivers side floor
Jun 22, 2012 (1:16 pm)
I have a 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited, I bought it used and every time it rains the floor on the drivers side becomes flooded, I am stumped as to where the water is coming from. I've looked for any drips or visable water leaking from inside, but I can't find any. Help please.

Did you ever get this issue corrected/find what was holding the water? My 2011 has just started doing the same thing. I am taking it to dealer tomorrow.

Saw your posts. Had a friend with a similar issue. He determined it was one (or usually more) of four issues. All are known issues per Jeep TSB's and semi related.
1) Sunroof ECU settings. The sunroof would accidently "close" at the incorrect level -- too low by up to a quarter inch. This can be solved by manually adjusting each time when you close it or paying to have someone reset the sunroof setings.
2) The roof rail has a known issue of potential water seepage at the screw points due to lost tightness. This can be solved by greasing or tightening the affected areas.
3) The door seals will eventually wear down/suffer leakage. This can be solved by replacing the door seals.
4) JGC's have a known drain tube issue whereby they get kinked, clogged or otherwise cannot handle the amount of water. This compounds issue 1 - 3 if present and can be fixed by having a mechanic fix as this does require the headliner to be removed to work on.
The key is get it addressed ASAP though. The leak typically runs down the A-pillar to the floor, but on the way passes the ECL housings... so it can short your fuses or do worse damage which will cost larger dollars if this occurs.
#37 of 39 sun roof leaking

hello, same thing happened to my Grand Jeep Cherokee 2005 5.7L...turned out to be a computer problem where the room did not close all of the way. The rubber seal flap that shifts to different positions according to when you open or close the sunroof failed to go into the correct position when you would close it. The computer glitch was fixed by the dealership and the flap now closes correctly...no water any more. But, I went through the same issues...thought it was the drain tubes, thought it was the windshield seal, etc. Hope this helps.
