what year dc5?

im guessing first gen

regardless hondas are a fucking idiot designing the tailight like that with a paper thin gasket

bottom line, get new tailight gasket from dealership for like $20 bux, replace them. AFter u are done with tat grab a silicon gun and seal the gaps between the trunk and ur tail light gap. Solves the problem.

i replace the gaskets twice and still leaked on my 05, so i said the fuck with it and silicon the shit out of it. NO problem ever since. + i drilled a small on on the tailight end where u can see, otherwise before my tailight was like an aquarium tank, can raise gold fish and shit


sun roof one its been awhile but i think i just used an air compressor and blow the shit out of the tube
