Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

Why can't they build these things without leaks? Keeping water out should be one of the highest priorities from a car manufacturer. I had this problem in my 05 Grand Cherokee Limited and eventually they had to replace with a new sunroof. Thanks for the information Milous.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

Interesting where the sunroof drains it dumps into the cowl train and doesn't run all the way to the bottom of the car. I think it also shows all the talk about removing grommets on the bottom panels isn't advised, the problem is not draining those areas but preventing water from getting in there in the first place.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

It was awful. Trying to drive and I've got water dripping out of the A-Pillar onto my leg. This was right after I bought it brand new.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

I've been trying to isolate a possible bad smell (like mold or standing water) somewhere inside my 2012 WK2.

Could a water leak be the cause and what is the best way to bring this up with the dealership?

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

Had my water leak fixed about a month and a half ago. It was leaking into the back coming from the ceiling about four inches in front of the hatch.

VERY FRUSTRATING. It seems to be fixed now.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

yes, got a very bad smell in mine as well. Smells like stale water/moisture.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

I just found out my 2012 Overland with the standard sunroof has a leak in that area.

I discovered it while in a carwash. The water seems to be entering from the rear edge of the sunroof. With the sunshade closed, there is nothing to notice. But I had the sunshade open and I felt a drip of water. I felt along the top of the sunshade and discovered it was wet.



I'll be taking it in to have this newest problem fixed.

BTW, I don't see any mention of checking the sunroof area in the TSB above. Is there a seperate one that addresses this kind of leaking problem?

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

my 10 yr old acura with a sunroof never leaked...no reason why a 2012 should be leaking....i hope mine doesn't..

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Waterleak Diagnosis Procedures

Hello all dont know where to post this but ill try here, any info would be very much appreciated! I just purchased a 2012 jgc loredo x and i have been reading this forum for awhile now trying to see if the issues that the 2011 jgc had been having are resolved in the 2012 models. Also does anyone know if they started giving the true on/off road tires instead of the touring tires with the advt pckg 2? As well as the sluggish acceleration issue? any help would be much appreciated.
