Rubber seal

#1 by Tiredtony ( Guest ) , Sat Aug 03, 2019 6:55 pm

Hi, I have a '04 l200 with a roller shutter, problem I have is the rubber seal isn't keeping the rain out of the tub which has carpet liner damp and smelly, the rain is mainly coming in from the rear near side corner, any constructive advice warmly welcomed, thanks folks.

Problems logging in so tired tiny now chippy ffs. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Already have the 4 drainage pipes in place, the problem is a rubber seal on top of the tailgate is not keeping the rain out and need to source something from somewhere.

Is it one of the fixed corners?
If so maybe double-sided neoprene tap , or if you aren't removing it , some clear it black silicone?
