    Default Estate rear lights condensation

    The outer rear lights of my estate are constantly fogged up inside. I've noticed a couple of other estates with the same problem. Anyone know of a solution for this. I changed bulbs in them not long after I got the car but have rechecked the seals and they look ok.

    Default Blow dry and sealant

    I had the same. I took the lights off the car and noticed they weren't sealed properly anymore. So, I drained them, used a blow dryer to dry them, then used weather-proof sealant to seal them off. This seemed to have worked.

    Damn it! The amount of those silicon gels bags I've thrown away!!! Will try it out when I come across some more.
    mvdg, did you just reseal the bit where the bulb holder part attaches to the light or was water getting in elsewhere?
    Thanks for the replies.
