Installing rear liftgate bottom seal?
My 2004 Rubicon leaks due to a worn out bottom seal on the rear liftgate. The dealer wanted more than $200 for a piece of plastic and rubber, so I ordered that part online. But, it didn't come with any instructions. Anyone have any tips on installing a new assembly. The old one seems like it's glued on, but I can't see inside. So, I don't really know what I'm working with. Thanks for any help.

Hope this is not too late.

I just shoved a screwdriver between the glass and plastic piece and broke it apart. I then used a razor to get the old glue off. When you put it back on use glass glue, the stuff that windshields are installed with.

Thanks. I was thinking along those lines, but thought I'd check to see if there was a "cleaner" option. Sounds like there is not. Here goes.
