    Most likely remove taillight, let water out of holes in assembly and use clear silicone around the edge of the lens and housing. Let cure for 24 hours and reinstall. Could be done other ways.

    got to take them off to drain them, 3rd time I had to do that, I drilled holes. That was the last time I've touched them.
