United-States Hatch weatherstripping/gasket

Hello. I have a 2002 Mini hatchback, my daughter's car actually, which I regret to say was not properly maintained while she was in college. (It was bought in 2007, basically on ebay.) I am trying to make up for that neglect, and have spent many thousands of dollars in it in the last 9 months. Current issue: the weather stripping around the hatch is leaking when it rains. I had to have a major computer part replaced in the summer because a window was left partially open during a heavy storm, nearly killed the car, so I am very sensitive to moisture issues. My question is: is replacing that weather stripping something that my brother and I could do or do I need to take it to a body shop? I will only have the mechanics of the car worked on by a Mini dealer now, after several bad experiences elsewhere, what about something like this hatch gasket or weather stripping. Is it specialized enough to pay dealership shop prices? Thanks.

Hi ya

If you talking about the seal between the body and the boot lid item 4 on this link

RealOEM.com * BMW R53 Cooper S TRUNK LID/CLOSING SYSTEM

I would think it would take you no longer than 20-30 min to remove the old one and install the new one if you have never done it before very easy and straight forward

Hope this helps
