    Why is just one reverse light doing this?

    I never drive in rain or wet conditions. Not even fog. Just noticed this? Is there a thread somewhere about this? I couldn't find anything when I looked.

    Air is getting in there somehow. The temp changes from night to day will cause condensation. Since the water cannot escape, it just beads up on the surface. Might need to come apart and have weather proofing replaced. Just my best guess.

    I agree. Weather, or even the heat from the bulb is producing condensation after cooling from getting outside air. Heck, maybe even from a car wash? At any rate, likely the seal.

    Thanks, fellas! Is there a "how-to" on this forum or anywhere to guide me through this process?

    There are a few threads on this issue. This is just one of them and seems to be the most common solution. Get out your drill

    This is where my skill set ends. ANY time of CREATING, I fail. Miserably. I can't nail two 2x4's together if my life depended on it, let alone drill a damn hole into my car!

    I can assemble, disassemble any firearm in my sleep, build super computers, change almost any part in a car. But tell me to make a hole or nail something? I'm going to the hospital.. Time to call a buddy!

    I'm sure you know someone who is handy with a drill that can help you out though.
