on second thought, i'll probly just take the gaskets out and just use clear silicone instead. I agree thats its ridiculous to keep having to buy gaskets. Silicone does come off the car, and its in a hidden spot. Besides, if it fixes the problem, more power to the silicone. Its supposed to snow again here in tx this week, then i expect the rain season shortly. So i gotta get on it.

sohu is an unknown quantity on c-rsx
FYI, the invoice I got for the gaskets ordered via P/N from Acuraoemparts.com (33502-S6M-A51 for 05-06 models):

06335-S6M-305 Gasket Kit, R. Ba
06336-S6M-305 Gasket Kit, L. Ba

I actually ordered qty. 2 of the Acuraoemparts.com, which if for one side, I would either have ended up with 2x of the left gaskets, or 2x of the right gaskets.

I guess Acuraoemparts caught that and sent me one for each side... but what if I needed two of one side? :P

used some high temp silicon sealant that I'm using for my shift mechanism and it works wonders. My car still stinks of vinegar and this was over a week ago but we have been getting murdered with rain and so far so good.

i found my leak to be on the driver side where the light meets the frame, ran some clear sealent along the seam to the bottom,wiped off excess sealent. and no more leak, eff buying them foam gaskets that dryrot in 6 months. plus if you need to get the lights off its not glued just run a razor blade along the seam and there you go, took 45 mins tops

did this too worked great! i actually just went to acura and got the new seals with the adhesive back. I just ended up drilling a tiny hole on the bottom of my headlight to drain and evaporate the water, it worked flawlessly

I went on the acuraoem site and they only have the gasket for 02-04 years. It shouldn't matter for the 05-06 years, the gasket should still fit right?

I bought them from my dealer for 05-06. I would just get the right gaskets and call it a day.

Like someone said earlier, these are the new gaskets with the adhesive backing. The old gasket used to be the same part for Left and Right.

Don't know if it's going to work but we'll see with time.

I replaced my gaskets with the craft foam (had a lot of it) cut it to size. it was a bit thinner that what was originally there. But I had also purchased clear silicone caulk, and used that to seal off the areas that were giving me problems on the original gaskets.

After that I used some more of the caulk and did this, and haven't seen a drop of water in the past 4 months.

(used the silicone to seal up the holes, creating a channel for the water to run right out.)

Say that when your trunk starts sloshing, and you wanted to put subs and amp in the tire well. I'd rather be safe then sorry, and its not like you can see anything when the trunk is closed.

just take off the taillights, cleaned them, use silicone on the marks and before it dries put it back on the taillight, then do the other one. put taillights back together. its easy.
