So I took my jeep to the carwash today and just so happened to be looking around while I was inside and noticed water pretty much pouring out of the upper rear trim piece by the tailgate. got out of the wash go to check it out the weather stripping seams fine I did notice the big black boot and connector were lose. pushed it in tight and am hoping that will solve the problem. Then when I'm driving home I notice water dripping out of the OS grab handle (A pillar) on the passenger side. Again weather stripping in the area looks fine. Noticed there was now a wet spot on the roof right at the corner of the visor as well.

So do you guys think water could run the length of the roof in the headboard or do I have two separate issues here?

I know there are problems with the sun roof drains clogging but haven't read up on it. I will research when I get home tonight, but wanted to throw this out in case someone knows anything.

Im placing my money on sunroof drain issue. Both front corners of the sunroof I believe have train tubes that run the front pillar behind the grab bar. Maybe try putting compressed air through them from the top to clear them out?

I had the same problem with water dripping out of the OS grab handle (A pillar) but on the driver's side and my door seals looked fine also.

I replaced the door seals and had the door re-aligned and that solved the problem.

I'd recommend replacing the rear hatch door seal as well.
