Re: [DML] Re: Leaking Seals...or something else?

First relocate your Inertia switch to the area near your hood release. 
This was a safety recall.

The rest of your leaks just use some Permatex Black RTV or some other 
type of all wether silicone to fix your leaks. The hole behind your 
speaker can be fixed by siliconeing a piece of rubber over the hole.

Good luck
