    Moisture in reverse lights 2000 T/A

    I was looking at my T/A one day & i noticed moisture in one of my reverse lights,only on the passenger side,and today i was looking at my cousins T/A & noticed there was also moisture in his reverse light as well,but only on the driver side how many of you guys had this issue? And how do you resolve it? We never had this problem with our previous 4th gen T/As,but others may have experienced it as well,i thought it would have dried up by now,well my car isnt driven as much,so mine has probably dried up by now,but his just got washed today so maybe water is getting in from somewhere

    I have delt with this on both of my birds.. if you dont fix it the chrome inside the housing will deteriorate and become black making the entire taillight dark and unreflective.

    drill some 1/8 - 1/4 inch holes in the bottom of the housing, one at the dead bottom center of each bulb housing (four total)

    enjoy your clear housing.
