the seals seem to be in place. The strange thing is that the rear reflector bar and license plate lights are outside the rubber seal and they are filling with water. No cracks that I can see. Gonna get a hose and see where its getting in.Run a piece of paper between the rubber seals or smear some paint on the rubber seals and close the trunk. See where the marks are thinner/non-existent.
Hi Alex,The solution was to make a new gasket from foam sheet. I made mine a bit thick and the light sits a little proud of the surface, but it works.
I've had good results using bits of an old yoga mat for sealing stuff around the house (didn't need in in my car). The foam they're made of has a nice closed cell structure and is easy to work with. I like re-using old stuff.Hi Alex,
Where did you get your foam sheet? My tail light gaskets are also in poor condition and I need to replace them, but have struggled to find a property material.
Thanks and cheers,
