    Rubber gasket around frunk

    Anyone else had the problem of the rubber gasket coming loose from around the frunk. The worst part is at the bottom (closest to the seat). Any suggestions of glues for keeping it in place?

    You're not alone with that problem, happens a lot for me too. I've never glued it though ...it's a game to put it back each time into its grove along the bottom. How quickly can you do it without it popping back out and you lose points for swearing...

    I used a little clear silicon sealant to glue it in place.

    I dunno, mate. My Drill Instructor made quite the impression on me that some properly worded commentary was essential to getting any task completed.


    Iím supposed to respect my elders, but itís getting harder and harder for me to find one now ..

    Same for me, always out of place. If I put it back, it just falls out next time I close/open the frunk. So far I haven't had it get wet, in spite of this.

    Ditto on clear silicone sealant; a couple few spots to hold it in place. Tub and Tile version for exposure/resistance to water.

    I have had the inside part of the lid replaced and it's started to do that.

    Will try the sealant trick when I have the time.

    Yeah it still gets compressed when the lid is shut making it watertight but itís just more annoying that anything.
