On the 86 5ktqw the tail lights are sealed by a putty like gasket not
reusable.  You can get it at automotive shops or dealers.  Usually called
dumdum (don't ask).  It comes in the form of putty strips. I got some of
this stuff from a GM dealer (sorry guys) for free.  The guy did not know it
was for an Audi.
