Lo All :D
While I'm waiting for the gasket's to arrive I thought I would stick some kitchen paper below My rear lights inside the boot to see if they get wet.
Had some rain and one piece got wet.
So now I know that water is getting in on My passenger side light cluster :D
Cheers ;)

Lo All :D
I fitted My new rear light gaskets today.
When I removed the old gaskets from the light assembly I noticed that the gasket wasn't sitting on the fixing bolt collar's but had been stretched over them and was sitting behind them :?
This is wrong isn't it ?
I have refitted them with the new gaskets resting on top of the collar's.
Can someone please confirm this is correct please :D
Cheers ;)

I refitted mine on top of the collars like you have but the old ones were behind them. The boot has been dry since they were fitted over a year ago.

Yep, shouldn't be stretched behind, should be sat over.
