    Default plastic repair

    walked past my car giving it an admiring glance. (washed it today) and saw condensation in the offside rear light clutser.

    there is a small crack in the bottom of the lens and water had got in....

    Is there a quick, easy and cheap fix possible.......

    Don't use ordinary superglue. It'l bloom and you'll get a white film on the inside of the lens. Use non-blooming superglue to stop this happening.

    Have a look in B&Q, Helfrauds etc, it's known as low bloom superglue. Bostick, evostick etc make it. I use it for my model aircraft. If you go to a model shop, they will definatly have some.
