    More Water - Tail Lights this time

    So apparently my car is retaining water all over the place. Yesterday someone pointed out that my Driver's Side Tail Light was doubling as a canteen. There's nearly and inch of standing water sloshing around inside the tail lamp. You can see the line of water fairly well with the lamps on.

    I looked around the housing but I don't see any obvious entry points.

    I suppose I could "fix" this issue by drilling a couple holes in lens, but that's not really a permanent solution. Where should I be looking to seal this thing up?

    Fill up your tub with water, dump the tail light into it and look for the bubbles....
    I would assume its coming in somewhere around the perimeter.

    A much easier and safer way would be to spray some soapy water on it and blow air though the bulb opening to see where the bubble are forming
