2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
Were you able to find the source of this leak? I am experiencing the exact symptoms with my 2014 Cherokee that you described. This is a heavy leak that is pouring water out of the side panels below the speaker anytime it rains. I found about 4 gallons of standing water in my spare tire compartment (I have been ignoring the mildew smell for some time now and finally had some time to investigate). The roof rails appear to be water tight.I’m having a similar problem and can’t find anything in the internet that similar except your post. My 2016 keep Cherokee latitude has odd smell inside that’s pungent and strong. I looked around to find where it was coming from - in the spare wheel well to find lots of water. I’ve removed everything, including the plastic to pull the carpet up to dry everything out. It’s all dry now, including the thermal fabric on the right and left side. I sprayed the entire car with white vinegar to kill the mold and smell. The smell is returning... this past rain storm I discovered rain coming through the back right speaker holes. Was this similar to your situation? I ask because I’m unsure where it’s coming from. The ski racks looks and radio antenna appear sealed. I’m at a loss.
