Make sure you seal around all the mounting bolts for the rear number plate panel, and also the number plate screws. There is a recess inside the tailgate for the latch mechanism to sit in, seal around this recess too, there is a body seam there.

With the number plate surround off, look inside the bottom of the tailgate, where the rod from the handle goes down to the lock mechanism. There should be a seam around the area where the lock bolts on.
