    Hi, I have a 95 Yj. I have a leak that looks like it may either be coming from where the windshield folds down or where the cowl is. I've also had some leaks that seem to come from the body by the doors. A little rubber seal fixed that. I believe the leaks have fried my wires that go to my sound bar as well as my radio. It will come on, but only sporadically. Any advice on trying to track down and fix the leaks? I would also like to know if anyone knows how to get to the windshield wiper fluid mechanism.

    I know this is a long read, please be patient. I'm a new jeeper. :)

    Welcome @Jhoyt14 . Concur with checking out Quadratec.com for rubber seals, washer pumps or Jeep parts. The 24-yr old rubber seals are probably due for replacement. While sitting in the Jeep have a friend run a garden hose simulating a rain shower (not full blast) to help locate the trouble spots. If water leaks have affected electronics or damaged wires start by checking the fuses and test for 12V power with a multi meter. Since the radio function is intermittent there may be a broken wire that can be replaced.

    Is it hard to get to that area? I also need to reattach my wiper fluid hose and I think its under the cowl area but I'm not sure how to pull that off I can get the srain cover off easily.
