ANOTHER UPDATE... SADLY...
Put in my Jeep once again due to the same leak I've had on passenger side. They've had it for 4 days and I pick up today and guess what... THEY CAN"T FIND THE LEAK..... They've tried everything and they can't get it to leak. I have no clue that to do.. I feel at a loss... It's less water than before and what is weird is... I barely have any passengers and there would be water on top and under the mat... how the hell does that water get on the mat? I want to give up on the Jeep but it's not even paid off yet.... UGH... lol I hope everyone else is having more help than I am....
Hi,
Sorry to hear that..
The water is getting on the mat from under it. Check below.
Take a look at this post: https://jeepnewcompass.forumfree.it/m/?t=77129565&st=75#entry637520717
It's in Italian, but I linked a post with photos only. Maybe you can show your dealer those pictures.

I had the same fix made to my car, and now even when it's pouring, I have no leaks inside the passenger side.

Basically my problems were:
  • bad weld under the main chassis
  • a/c hose misplaced or clogged
  • missing seal under wheel well.

Good luck and keep us posted.
Best regards

Hello!

I had water built up in my floorboards after a big rain.

Before you go to a professional leak specialist, I recommend checking the following simple fix:

Windshield drain holes are blocked (see diagram below). If these 2 little holes are blocked, water will leak into the floorboard. More here:

Do a search on here. There is another issue with a spot weld seam not being sealed during assembly. This issue is more prone to be on the passenger side but could be both sides.

Hi, where is exactly this seam?

Hi, where is exactly this seam?
Under the hood, each side just below the windshield where the hood hinges attach to the body. You can see where the sealant oozed out at the seam. This is a good seam/seal. Don't seal the area marked "drain".
