I just pulled the gasket back up and cleaned out the out sealant. What should I try this time. Maybe RTV?
I have had very good luck with 3M strip caulk. It can be purchased at most auto parts stores, especially those that carry painting supplies. But, be sure that you know where the leak really is. Sometimes the source can be misleading. I would get inside the trunk with a bright flashlight and have a helper with a hose work up from the bottom watching carefully where the water first appears. Also, check the surfaces that the gasket is sealing against to make sure there is not an imperfection that prevents a good seal from being made. I'll try to get you a part no......here ya' go.
This stuff will not dry out or crack when it gets really cold. It can be removed with kerosene or turpentine or mineral spirits if need be. It is hard to work with at temperatures above 80F. ]
