    I’ve got a ton of condensation (water) in a rear tail light. Just wondering if others have experienced this and how to approach the issue. I could order a replacement but I’m wondering if I need to go to that extreme or is this a simple fix.

    Thank you for all replies!

    I believe those tail light housings have a small drain line on them to vent them. It could just be clogged and not letting the moisture back out. I'm not sure how you would check that without removing the whole assembly though, not that that is a terribly difficult job. You could put the plastic covers on them easily enough. The drain line is on the outside just inside the rear fender. There's a little tab with a hole in it on the fender that the drain goes through if I remember correctly.

    While you're there you could check all the bulb sockets and make sure they have good seals on them. Might just be that some of the glue holding the lens on has given up, but hard to say for sure.
