    Water in Taillights

    One of my taillights keeps getting water in it. Should i use some kind of sealant and replace rubber bushings or drill holes at the bottom to let the water run out? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I would just drill holes to let the water out. Trying to reseal lights can be a pain. If you just drill holes you will still get condensation on the inside of the lens, which can be unsightly and annoying, but sometimes just turning the lights on will dry it out.

    If you take the lens off dry it out and reseal you should be good to go, but don't use some crappy glue, use a slower drying silicone tube or something, then tape it all up and let it dry overnight,

    also be careful separating the lens from the housing that you don't crack your lens, a heat gun will help loosen it up.

    I did this a while back and where I live it is always 90% plus humidity around here all the time.

    I drill 3 holes on the bottom 1/8" holes, one for the back up light and two for the brakes on each light.

    Ever since no issues.
