You have to heat it up with a hair dryer or heat gun.

always remove the old seal and replace it.... if you are going to paint/tint... do the paint first then apply the sealer and reinstall the lens... make sure both surfaces for the sealer are clean and free of all oils, waxs, dirt, dust...

I never used any type of sealant and never had an issue.. The original foam like seal should do just fine, since you're bolting it back into the underside of the trunk lid and the trunk lid itself will apply enough pressure to keep it together. Just like closing a door with a foam seal around the jam...

No problem..

Now that I think about it, that foam seal I was talking about is not the seal of the lens to the led housing, but the seal that applies to the trunk lid opening. As long as your trunk isn't taking in a huge amount of moisture, you'll be a-ok. Otherwise, you'd have bigger problems than the brake light to worry about.

Good luck with the mod!

Small amounts of water on the floor of your trunk.. Rust around bolts.. Electrical issues.. Frogs and other amphibians living in there.....

Great idea! The seal could eat the frogs and amphibians.

Sorry, I might be too new here to be a smart ass. Laughing No offense intended.[quote]
