    Dark Tail light lense

    Hi all, I've got an 02 TA and have noticed that the right side tail light lense looks like it has gotten darker. I'm not sure what could have caused this but it is very noticable. I've seen the same thing on a couple of 98-up birds. The car was not like that new and it only has 24K miles on it. Anybody else seen this or know what causes it?

    I've got the same problem with my left reverse light. Moisture gets in the lenz whenever it rains or I wash my car. It has destroyed the silver finish behind the bulb and looks very dull. Might want to check.

    No, it is discolored. Nothing will bring it back.

    Yes, junk-yard going rate is about $85. I got one off my roommate's 98 firebird as he treats it like shit and doesnt care. I just swapped.
