    Water leak at door seal

    Hi all. My wifes 97 XJ has a leak under the left hand front door seal, as per attached photos. Just wondering if anyone has had this leak and what you have done to stop it. And if you're wondering what the white powder is, it's flour my wife put down so we could track and leaks. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I am having a similar issue on my TJ. My problem is the window seal is bad then it gets inside the door then leaks inside the Jeep.

    Re: Water leak at door seal

    The rubber door seals on the upper jam of the door have been an issue on some cherokees. They dont make a tight seal between door and frame, a quick and cheap fix is to get clear hose tubing (i forget the diameter) and run it along the inside of the door seal. It creates a stiffer seal against the frame. My .02
