Tail Lights – Keep Water/Dirt Out of Edges

This tech tip is for those of you who, like me, are sick of having water,
dirt, dust, etc. accumulate around the edges of our C5\’s tail lights.
After trying a few things, I found that a silicone rubber door gasket did
the trick.
The product is made by \”M-D Building Products\” and
called \”Tear Drop Profile Ultra Weatherseal: Silicone Rubber Door Gasket
- 1/4\” Thick by 1/2\” Wide and 20\” Long.\” I found this stuff at
Lowe\’s for about $15-20 bucks. It has a self-adhisive backing that
keeps it stuck to the tail lights.
It does a great job in keeping
dirt, water, dust, grass, etc. from getting in between the tail lights and
the rear bumper. It looks very clean and professional and as if factory
original.
