Freedom Top – Header Seal – Water Leak In Area Of Dash
2007 – 2008 (JK) Wrangler
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a Freedom Modular Hard Top (Sales code VK0). Vehicles equipped with Dual Tops (Soft Top and Freedom Top) should have this bulletin performed with the Freedom Top installed only (NOT THE SOFT TOP). The replacement header seal may initially cause a soft top wind noise.
This bulletin involves the replacement of the header seal and its associated butyl adhesive.
This bulletin will address water leaks due to the FRONT HEADER SEAL at the roof.
Water leaks associated with the header seal can cause the front floor and/or instrument panel to get wet. Water leaking into the vehicle at the B-Pillar or anywhere further back in the vehicle are not covered in this Service Bulletin. Water leaks in these areas are addressed in other Service Bulletins and eFiles. Refer to those Service Bulletins and eFiles as necessary.
