We can check TSBs for you (if you haven't already made contact with the dealership). Just PM your VIN if you wanted us to check.

Kori,

I tried to PM you, but Taptalk says that JeepCares has too many messages and can't accept any more.

Can you PM me with alternate contact details?

Thanks for the help.

Local dealer said that the mud i drove through pushed the AC drain hose off the bulkhead fitting on the frame. I'm not sure that I believe them. I don't see any evidence of mud on the interior of the Jeep, even after removing all the interior trim. Instead, I think that the AC drain hose was not installed correctly at the factory or worked off in the winter.

Anyway, remove the trim panel in the passenger side foot-well on the center console. Check that the AC drain runs from the evaporator core to the bulkhead fitting on the transmission tunnel. If it has worked off, re-connect it.

Once that is done, you will need to dry out the carpet/padding. I've parked my Jeep outside and placed a space heater in the cabin. I also pulled the door jam trim so I could lift up the carpet and blow the warm air from the space heater into the padding. I'll run it over night with the windows open. My goal is to dry out the pad so that mold or rust won't grow.

I don't see a way to lift up the rear passenger carpet without removing the front passenger seat. Does anyone have any hints? The seat fasteners don't look like a hex or a torx head. What tool I need to buy?

I don't know the tool you need but I remember a shop I went to last year needed to buy tools just to install gear into my Dart and they are the same bits.

Hello.

I notice the water problem on the rear passenger area when I was going to vacuum the rear floor of my 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport. My Jeep has some Goodyear carpets (very similar to the Weathertech ones) on top of the removable factory carpets. Long story short, there was water and lots of very nasty mold (and black, white, green) sandwiched between the goodyear carpets and the factory removable carpets.

I cleaned the whole thing but I'm worried about the issue, thinking that the water may come from the A/C. I guess I need to take another trip to the dealer to get that fixed.

Do anyone here has the same issue? What did you tell the dealership and how did they fixed the problem?

Thanks!

Hi waltrodz,

We do have a technical service bulletin regarding leaks in the front passenger area. Since yours is the rear, it doesn't apply exactly, but may give the dealership something to go off of. That TSB is #23-015-16 REV. A.

When it is time to rid yourself of the mold smell that will linger, i swear by the BioCide CLO2 Auto Shocker. Smells like a pool for a bit and when that smell wears off there is no smell left... just make sure you run the AC for at least 15 minutes. I left it for 24 hours and ran the ac (auto started it) once at the beginnig of the 24 and once at the end for 15 mins apiece. It saved our Ford when even pro detailers couldnt get the smell out.

Plus it is only 20 or $30 and has a money back guarantee.
