    If the lights are sealed properly, then the thermal cycle would keep the fog from happening. The problem is that once you have a leak in the seal, then the balance is shot to hell and you get the fog. As KC said, drill a small hole in the bottom of the lens and you should be fine. Matter of fact, if you do it right, the best thing to do would be to drill one in the top AND bottom, but then if you do it wrong, all you'll do is give water a way in.

    From what I've seen....most of these guys would do it wrong! Wes would probably drill a hole from the outside with a 2" hole saw!

    Or maybe just whack it with a ball peen hammer!

    Your probably out of blinker fluid!!!! Or no let me look in the caddi manual, ah yes there it is you have activated the tail light condesation switch please take your car to the nearest caddi dealer for a good OUT OF POCKET experiance. Although I have a friend that had the same problem on his lincoln LS he used that stuff (I'm really not sure of what its called) that absorbs water and says DO NOT EAT. it worked for him fine dropped it in the light hole and bam no condesation. Seems like the backyard mechanic way but whatever works!
    Good luck

    Silica.......They use it to prevent moisture from damaging electronic components during shipping and storage. It's the little tea bag looking thing that accompanies most stereo equipment that you buy.

    And you're absolutely correct.....It works very well in STS tail lights.

    And just think, when you get ready to sell your car you should have accumulated enough of these tea bags to ship you car over the pond moisture free thus further opening the foreign market.

    Then you could eat them. Oh wait it says DO NOT EAT. I'm guessing the only reason they put that on there is casue someone ate one and dried out. HMMMM just something to think about.
