That sounds like a dealer part. Parts stores generally do not sell body gaskets such as door seals, taillight gaskets, window fuzzies, etc.

Your best bet is the dealer.

Use RTV around the stud/bolt holes.

RTV is a liquid silicone that drys to a rubbery consistency. Its also called "gasket and seal maker".

Its handy for sealing stuff... can be found and bought at pretty much any parts store for 2-5 bucks for a tube, depending on quality/applicaion.

Put it around the bolt HOLE in the body panel.

You want RTV rated for body and trim adhesive/sealing. Usually black.

The only issues I have with using RTV like that is if you get too much and it gets squeezed out (making a bit of a mess to get a neat looking seam) and getting it off the paint later for you take the part off the body. (as a sealant, it will work well..I'll give it that ) I just have trouble guessing how much to use to get it to squeeze out into a nice, neat, bead on the seam of the parts.

Another option for a replacement seal when the OEM is out of production is to make one out of inner-tube rubber. Cut out a new gasket from the rubber using an X-acto knife and whatever is left of the old seal as a template.
