Why does the driver's side floor and the fuse box get soaked when it rains?


Asked by May 10, 2012 at 06:54 AM about the 2006 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It happened once before and it was the tube from the sky light.  Blew it out with the air hose and it's not that this time.  Really soaked, fuse box was effected, now horn is weak.  Under the hood is dry.  Door is dry.

I mean, sunroof.


It is possible that when you blew out the drain line from the sunroof that the hose came off of the drain from the sunroof.


I don't think so because it was leaking before that.


I saw the water dripping along the door hinges.


Another place water could be getting in is the fresh air intake by the wipers. There is a drain on the bottom of this compartment and possibly plugged allowing the box to fill and overflow.

I don't have a sunroof. The leaks were coming from under the plastic stripping on top of the roof. The stripping is pushed through holes IN the roof and the sealant wasn't properly adhered to stop the water from coming through. I had water run inside my Jeep on the driver and passenger side. We took the 2 plastic roof strips off and used proper glue. This fixed the problem 100%.

The water was leaking through both plastic strips on the roof.
