  • A little bit soggy...

    Heres the situation. Im in VA and we are getting an *** load of rain and just recently, my YJ just started to leak water behind the dash. Now if it were just a few drops it would be ok, but it is more like its pouring rain on my feet. Im suprised that my electrical stuff still works (only thing is my wipers are alittle off) but my main question to you, the colective mind of 4wd, how can i prevent this downpour behind my dash. Anyone else with a similar problem? What would be the best countermeasure to save my electrical wireing before it shorts out and dies?

    Thanks in advance
    -Frank

              Same here, replaced seal at bottom of windshield to slow leak behind dash. Just watch if you have never had the windshield down you may have problems with hinges, use lots of spray. I had to replace hinges after one side broke trying to fold windshield on my '87.

                  Good Idea to check the rubber seal but also look at the gasket around the windshield, mine needed to be replaced and that fixed the problem

                      Anybody got any tips to getting the windshield down without breaking the hinges. I will used lots of wd-40 or would another type be better? I dont want my hinges to break like King03Kev's did.

                        I used PB Blaster on mine and it freed it after a little coaxing.

                          is this the vent drain that was discussed previously?
