    wat?
    had to go to the dealer today b/c of condensation building up in the drivers side fog light so much that i had an aquarium starting....then i have to go back tomorrow and talk to the service manager about my fenders being flimsy. they bow in right behind the headlights and make a rubbing sound...and they also push in right below the headlights and make the plastic filler piece under them squeak....the 07 didnt do it...so we'll see how that goes

    i had that problem with my fog light when i bought the truck (used). the bulb wasn't installed correctly last time it was replaced. i took everything apart, drained / dried the case and used some odd utensils with cloth to get in there and clean it, put a new bulb in and its been good every since..

    BTW

    The dealer wouldnt fix it because whoever had the truck before me put blue bulbs in and didn't install them correctly so they wouldn't do it under the warranty..

    thats good they fixed it. The service guy said he would look at mine to determine whether or not that would cover it under warranty, but that they most likely would not because it had been tampered with - then i would have to give them $100 just for lookin at it..so i decided to check it out myself. When i got under there to take it apart i noticed that the bulb wasnt even set in place correctly...easy fix =)

    I'm having this problem with my truck. Everytime I wash just under the headlights it sounds like I'm a damn orchestrator! Please post your finding.
