ebay marine sealant get that when you do pop the washer jets out and seperate the rubber seal from the bottom apply a smear of silicone where it meets the washer and again where it meets the bonnet and replace did mine last year and fine ever since

I changed a set 6 months ago due to them leaking on a relatives car.

I bought the ford revised washers and seals, about 6 or 7 quid IIRC. The seals are different and the washers fit much tighter to the bonnet.

Not had any more issues since so it's definitely been a good fix for me.

So unless the washers are a good tight fit to the bonnet, sealant is probably a waste of time unless you use polyurethane stuff and hope you never need to remove them in a hurry lol.
