This is a 83 300td - after a heavy downpour I noticed a lot of water in the
rear area next to the tailgate. Using a faithful old bottle of water trick I
can see water coming thru next to the hing where the rubber is damaged.
Cause of damage is the clip holding the wires to the rear tailgate is
touching & tearing the rubber. Any suggestions ... Can I simply cut out
damaged rubber & replace with good section - Replacing whole rubber looks
tough & no doubt expensive.
