I need to reoplace the seal due to the usual leak problem.
Question is do i need to buy a new seal or can i seal the area using some mastic?
Seems to me that mastic would be a more permanent solution than a new seal which would wear out again?
Anyone suggest why i shouldn't do this?

What year is your car? If you have a more recent one, you may want to buy the pollen filter housing for the 1998/1999 model years and embark and a daring "make it fit" adventure. I haven't had a single leak on mine, and there's no evidence that the prior owners ever had a leak there either. I seem to recall that they redesigned the pollen filter housing sometime around 2000 and managed to eff it up in the process.
