S4 Sprint Tail light cluster lens gasket failure

Happy New Year fellow travellers,
Heres my latest bind:
My rear lamp clusters are original and in overall good condition. However, the lens seal has deteriorated, its hardened and in places has somehow adhered to the lens plastic. See Photos
I cannot believe that it will offer any resistance at all to water ingress. If you look at the photo of the lens, the reason the hardened seal is in place is that it is firmly stuck! I am sure that I can remove it cleanly with a little effort. So i'm going to need a replacement gasket. Can anyone advise me of a source?

Bob,

I think that the original gaskets were gray. This site has them but in black, if you don't mind the difference.

Here as well. I bought these recently for my S4. Worked fine.

Thanks Gents.
The part i'm talking about is the seal between the lens and the light body, the grey part in the photo.
Since the car is all original, I would like to get the correct OEM seal if possible.

HI Bob,
They seem impossible to buy on their own (have looked for years). Pretty sure that a new gasket is provided when buying a new lens.
An expensive way to replace a gasket!!
Cheers,
Colin.

I bought a pair from RD Enterprises a few months ago. Only $14 for the pair, but they are black rather than gray.

on the same line the same grey was used for the license plate lights rubber gaskets, hard to find these days while black ones are still offered with new Hella spares
