Hose union inside panel (for rear windshield)


Yesteday night i push the button to have my rear windshield cleaned with water and the water started to flow from the panel (co-pilot).

I review this last night.

I removed the right panel side (bin) and get access to the interior. I found a water hose union inside the panel. the hose just fall apart. Well i put it back with the union, got tested and get all parts back.

I think Jeep should reconsider to run water hoses through the panel, or worse install unions inside the panel. This could be an incident. i was lucky, no short circuit happened, just water inside the car and carpet.
