There are two separate seals. The "main" one that seals the hatch to the body when the hatch is closed, is larger, and goes around the full perimeter of the hatch opening.  The smaller outer seal is more of a water deflector strip and attaches to the body on three sides, top and down both sides on the smaller L shipped body lip.  Neither of these seals appear to have the exact Nissan seal cross section shape, though they are likely to work okay if installed well.

 

Take the hatch off to do both seals so you're not tempted to "cheat" and not use enough adhesive (or none!) when you do the part at the top due to restricted access up there.

Second this!

 

...Nothing more annoying than looking in the rearview and seeing that gasket hanging down.
