    Yep, most will drill holes in the bottom of the housing.

    i used silicone to seal mine all around the housing... And if by some strange reason i needed to get in there all i would need is a razor to cut it off!!

    I had to replace both lamps awhile back. They were just faded and cracked in the lenses, so water got in there every time it rained.

    I haven't done anything like it yet, but I'd say you'd want your hole at the lowest point in the lamp itself. Sizewise, I couldn't imagine needing a hole bigger'n 1/8".
