Thank you for this video and for supplying the part. Replacing the seal was easy, but I had also removed the rear panel to make sure there was no debris inside the panel and metal part of the rear lift gate. Putting that back on was not so easy, but patience and another set of hands and we got it done.

Does your radio do a brief cut out on sound periodically? Mine cuts volume about 1 second every 20 minutes. Almost like a CD that skipped. Or changing a preset. Just the brief pause before the sound comes back on. It will do this on the radio function bluetooth etc. Doesnt matter if it's running on battery power, charging or running on the wall charger. Thanks!

You are very clever with pulling the thinsulate through the van ribs. So much faster than stuffing wool or jeans version of fiberglass through those little holes.
