    I read the post like 10 times but I didn't see what thickness everyone bought (If i'm blind, apologies). From Oki_boy's post I'm guessing 1/4 but Neil, what size is the kind you got?

    I'm gonna do this tonight hopefully...

    TIA
    Bad spellers of the world...

    UNTIE!!

      Nah 1/4 seems to small... it's probably 1/2.

              Yes they are the same.
              Here is the part number if you gonna go with OEM.
              33503-SK7-A01

              :edit: I always get a discount by puting this code in the "Newsletter discount code" space "AC012" So It will be $39.40 in total if you put that code in.

              As for me I am going to buy the Poly Foam Weatherstrip at ACE Hardware

                  i dunno...that is only a 1/4" thick, it may be too thin.(unless maybe you double up..) i got mine from the auto store, its much thicker and comes in like a 20' roll.

                    I'm having the same issue as you guys on my driverside rear light.
                    Kewl, that is where I will go.
                    Was it less expensive than walmart or the hardware store?

                            Agreed, I wish you could find a solid piece of material like the original gasket and cut it yourself.

                              bringing this thread back to life. I got a little puddle in the trunk from the rain last night. Could this be the cause of a faulty taillight gasket? Thanks

                                Yeah that's usually the place where it is coming in. There are drain holes near the aft of the trunk floor that allow water to flow out by the tail hook. As a temporary fix, you can apply tape to the top of the tailights' black plastic covers to prevent water from getting into there and fogging up your taillights. Actually, that's another way to know if the gasket is bad.
