Hello, when I bought my car the rear window seal that goes around the rear glass is missing, and water is leaking in.

Anyone know where I can get OEM replacement? any links would be nice.

I cant seem to find any information on it.

My rear window has a gap big enough to put ur fingers in and I can see the edge of the glass So i know a seal goes there. :angrysoapbox:

That is going to be a dealer only item unless you can find a good used one at a junk yard. Probably good idea to have the glass pulled and reset. Also a auto glass replacement company my have the seal you need as well.

That looks like the weatherstrip between the body of the car and the hatch. Not a window seal.
My bird is a working progress. New Marshall engine-forged pistons, upgraded rockers and stronger rods/bearings. Rebuilt transmission. New LSD. I wish money grew on trees :)

Go to a glass repair shop, like places that do windshields, and see what they can find. They have to replace that seal if the back glass is replaced... i think.
