    Ahh Gonzo, you're a better man than me, I woulda jumped out and gave them the spiel to assist them with clear brake lights moving forward, so to speak...lol

    I too had the watery tail lights, i have been able to cure the problem without the need to drill holes.

    the watre has to be getting in somewhere and mine only watered up after rain or a wash, therefore for me it was ingress more than condesation. reading all these posts I had resigned to the fact it was separation of the lens to the back of the light.
    However i noted the grey gasket was damp when i pulled the light to drill the holes, not being keen on this fix as it exposes the contacts to humidity i though i would try one last thing.
    This was a couple of months ago and i have seen some bad weather since and not one misty lens, the cure, remove the grey gasket a good dollop of Vaseline around it and re-insert...

    worked for me, worth a try before getting the drill out...

    The other day I lost all bulbs in the off side rear cluster. It was the day after I gave it a good jet wash, but that's the first time the problem has occurred since drilling the holes. I may try the Vaseline round the edge of the grey plug as a double precaution.

    Bit of an update, i had to split the light again for a blown bulb and the water returned.
    I removed the lights and dried them out over the good weather. this time when the grey gasket was removed i noted it was very flat here and there so i left them out (same as drilling holes?!?!).
    I have ordered 4mm rubber cord to replace them with. I was also thinking of inserting a bag of desiccant when i put them back together..

    the worry is if there is not enough give in the rubber will the units close?

    No need to drill I simply removed the foam gasket dried lights in sun for an hour or 2 been fine since...


    I never bothered with the rubber as removing the foam seems to have done the trick.

    Yeterday i removed gaskets from clusters and dried them out. This morning i checked them, they still clear! Is it possible? I worked so hard to seal them up, but moisture was always return next morning. When i will to wash my car with pressure washer, would water go inside the cluster? Now its totally opened.

    Hey guys, I'm wondering what foam gasket you're on about exactly. Would you be able to take a picture for me please to show exactly what you removed and dried. I've unfortunately got the problem on both clusters as when changing my bulbs I had to drain the water and dry them thoroughly but unfortunately it's came back.

    Regarding the drill photo, I'll post it below:

    Gasket is between cover, where are bulbs, and rest of housing. I dried clusters after removing the cover with bulbs.

    Sorry, cant send you picture. I put them tougether and monted it back on car.

    Only thing is, what happens when it rains, or when i wash car with pressure washer? For now, moisture/fogging is gone. :-P
