Resealing to fix leaks

  • This works only if there is no rust. Most European cars have rust caused by the stainless trim clips cutting through the paint.
  1. Remove the deck lid/tailgate from the car.
  2. Carefully flip it over onto a soft surface so you can get at the inside where the glass-to-deck lid seam is.
  3. Take masking tape and run a strip around on the glass and another on the deck lid leaving only the old sealer exposed.
  4. Using a caulking gun, filled with either silicone or urethane sealer, run a bead around between the glass and the deck lid.
  5. Use a putty knife to push the sealer into the seams, cracks, and crevices.
  6. Wipe off all excess sealer and then QUICKLY remove the masking tape.
