tailgate leak.

Post by rutter123 »

opened the tailgate this morning after some rain overnite and noticed water running down the inside of the tailgate window and dripping off the inside top right of tailgate, hence dripping onto the parcel shelf and interior trim panel, any ideas?

If it's coming off the tailgate window, it can only be the seal I would have thought. You could try some Captain Tolley's Creeping Crack cure. No, that really is what it is called! Tricky bit is not getting it on paint as it can stain.

It's good stuff, I think it just comes off with water or white spirit.
Meant for boats (Yachts) really, so get it from marine suppliers
