    Ugghhhh reverse light lens



    I'm certain I'm not the only one with this condensation problem.

    What's the fix? Get a new one, or take it apart and reglue it? This has been like this for years, but finally on my last nerve.

    A cheap fix to headlights like that is to drill a small hole in the bottom for water to escape and another elsewhere (for more airflow) to allow the condensation to evaporate.

    My car also had water in there when I bought it used. I took the rear light/license plate assembly off the car. Took an Air chuck and blasted all the water droplets out. Dried it with a rag in the spots all the water ran to and cleaned the lens also, then made sure the bulb base had a good seal (also upgraded to High intensity LED backup lights from "Precision LED" at the same time). I haven't got any water in it since and I hand wash my car frequently.
