    Dim tailight

    Hi i just bought a near brand new 02 trans am that has a clear history and in like MINT condition except for my left tailight seems to be much dimmer then the one on the right. I checked the actual bulbs and they all seem to be working fine, it almost appears that the texture on the left tailight is darker then the one on the right. Is this something that can be fixed?

    This is an unfortunate problem faced by many a firebird/ T/A owner. Your only luck is to find one on ebay or junk yard that matches. It is a manufacturing problem. Alot of these cars have that issue and hopefully you can find someone that has same problem just different side and you can trade so you both have a matching pair. Sorry for the bad news and good luck.

    I had the same problem develop on my 98 after water leaked into the housing and caused weird mold to grow on the reflectors. Tried to clean it but there's no way to do that with the sealed setup. Had to bite the bullet and order a new one. :-/
