As the title states, I'm looking for part numbers (or replacements/suggestions on how to get a good seal) for the seals that go on a spoiler.

I scored a spoiler, but the seals are ripped/dry rotted. I've included a couple pictures to show exactly what I'm talking about.

Thanks!

You could use door weatherstripping from a home door seal kit.

I've dealt with the leaking rear tail lense, and have read about people trying to replace the original seals (because they're no longer produced) with weatherstripping without success. My concern is that weatherstripping wouldn't work for this application either, and I'd end up with some significant leaks.

I replaced the OEM seals on the spoiler I bought here with some sheet rubber I bought from McMaster-Carr. It worked quite nicely. I also sealed the bolts & bolt holes with some silicone RVT before tightening them up. No leaks!

Good idea! I'll have to look into this. Do you have a link for the exact stuff you purchased?
