    Yesterday I noticed on my 2007 Tacoma right rear tail light lense had a lot of moisture inside the lens. I took it off today, dryed it out with a hair dryer, applied a bead of silicon all along the outside edge and put bulb grease on the Bulb Socket rubber gaskets. Not sure if that will work or what the problem was/is. Has anyone else had tail light moisture problems???

    Thanks ...Rocket

    My son had this same problem on his Mazda RX-8 and when we dried it out, it left water spots on the lens and chrome part, so I rinsed it out again with the Mr. Clean auto dry machine, then when we dried it out there were no water spots. This morning I checked my Corvette and the front left lower turn light has moisture in it. Hmmm??? Maybe I'll quit my day job and open a Auto Light Lense Drying Cleaning business.
