Rear lights

Have removed rear light due to water being in the lens and also boot (its a99 wagon) have found some loverly sticky stuff that is suposed to be a seal that has failed Do i need to replace with new sticky stuff (if so what is it ) or can i replace with a rubber/foam seal or gasket.

Would be suprised if thats where the waters getting in your lens i suspect the seal on the light units knackered meself between the outer lens and the backing-i used tigerseal to seal my rear lights back in-dont think any sort of gasket would be any good as when tightening up i`d be worried about snapping the studs out of the plastic as its going to have to be tight to seal well,is expensive but i already had some (See link below) but would have thought a cheaper sealant would do, just i know tigerseals mint.(just hope i never need lights out )
