Rear Light Cluster Gaskets

Recommended Posts


Hoping someone on here may be able to point me in the right direction.

I am after a pair of rear light cluster gaskets for a 2011 Yaris 1.33 VVT-i T Spirit Nav (6speed) 5d.

I have already gone through the process of buying some from the Toyota Parts Seller on eBay, but unfortunately when they came they didnt fit! The ones they sent were the following:


I have since returned these and hoping to get some money back (£50 for 2 pieces of foam is almost robbery).

The lights I have on mine are the type where the brake lights at the top are LED.

I've attached some pictures of the rear of one of the clusters, a picture of the back of the car with a cluster removed, and also a picture of one of the incorrect gaskets I was sent. Unfortunately I threw the old gaskets away - really wish I hadn't now!

Any help much appreciated as I cannot seem to find them anywhere!

That is the correct part number for a late mk2 (double-checked on the EPC and other online sources)

A used tail light for comparison - the foam is located by the 2 bolt posts and over hangs the edge as you bolt it down the foam moulds to the plastic and body as you can see in the pics in the link below

Oh crickey, I'm now wondering if I've sent them back when they were actually correct....urghhh. It really did seem like they were the wrong shape.

Thanks for your help.

in the absence of an appropriate gasket you might be able to cut a profile from a sheet of self-adhesive neoprene by tracing around it. Then stick that on.  Another alternative could be a u-profile window seal that could be seated around the sealing face, with a piece of butyl tape across the join to prevent any moisture ingress

Ideally you'd need a very low Shore hardness otherwise it wont compress enough to seal properly. I had some old u-channel pieces that were very soft when i last did this, ages ago. Shore hardness should be around 30 or max 40 shore.

The other alternative is to use some butyl tape on the bodywork, just rolled out from the roll without stretching. Join the ends and you'll have a perfect seal, whilst the light will also be held securely. Its often used for securing the vapour barrier inside the door. Something like this will be perfect:


All the best and do let us know how you get on.

Thanks Hasan. I'd actually already tried the butyl tape, this one in fact:


However I was concerned that even though I'd applied the tape to the thin edge of the light cluster as carefully as I could, there was a risk that the tape could seperate from the unit without me knowing when bolting the unit to the car. Maybe the butyl tape you suggested is wider and would be less of a concern.

I have however gone with another one of your suggesions with the neoprene sheet. I've ordered this:


I'm just hoping that a thickness of 3mm will be appropriate as this was just a guess! Do you think this is suitable?

Thanks again.

thats a good find there Jonno.  Yes looks quite appropriate, 3mm will mean there is sufficient give in it to permit a proper fit whilst also creating a good seal.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
