Water leak ( 21 Conquest )

I just recently bought a new stereo because the original had water damage. It is mounted in the overhead electronics box, i cant find any lesks in the top but there is a gap around the wiring that comes in through the side between the side curtain and the top. Could the water be coming in there? It seems that the rain would have to be blowing sideways. Anybody else have the same problem.

There should be a grommet in the side of hardtop where wire harness enters electronic box.

I thought there should be a gromet but there is quite a bundle of wires. I might have to use a sealer.

I doubt the problem is water coming in from the small hole where the wires come in. In order for water to reach your stereo, it must fill up with water inches deep.
More likely are holes on the roof of the hardtop drilled to mount antennas and radars. Also check the factory bolts holding down the fiberglass top to the frame. I had a very small leak in mine where water was seeping in through the bolts on my VHF antenna mount. I put some sealant on the bolts and the leak stopped.

Ivan, I sprayed a lot of water on the roof around all the antennas and couldnt find any leaks but i did it by myself. Maybee i will get some help.
