    I searched all over but couldn't find anything about this. my driver's side light started taking on water during the last major storm. enough to almost cover the reverse light. i know how to take the assembly off the truck, but does anyone know how to remove the clear lens from the housing so i can dry it out and replace what i'm assuming is a bad gasket? i tried putting a flathead in between the two pieces, but only managed to slightly crack the lens.

    It's sealed with glue. I would drill a hole, drain, add silica gel, reseal the entire lens.

    I'd try similar to the BHLM and bake it ever so slightly.

    wat?
    from seeing details of people doing the black tail light mod, the rear lights cant be baked and seperated. they were seperated via dremel.
