There are four drain holes on the bottom side of the trunk.. There is a water drain rail, just before the trunk latch with two holes left and right at the ends. Check these with a pipe cleaner or other tool to make sure they are free of any shavings from the factory.No this is just from the hose at my house. And its not like I am spraying water under the trunk lid.
So far no shorts or actual problems with the lights. The seals look fine as far as i can tell.
Ill mess with it a bit but it may just come to that.Way back when we had a very simple solution for water in the tail lights etc.....drill a 1/8inch hole in the bottom or middle of the lens, let it drain baby...end of issue....seals or no seals....get the water out of there....
Totally agree. But if all else fails, get the drill out!!! I have been in the "business" for longer than I care to remember, and I'll tell you this is a very minor issue that dealers and their service departments would rather blow off than actually fix. Best they would do is replace the light assemblies. And if the problem persists, get the drill out.Before I'd start drilling holes I'd take the car to a dealer. This thing called a warranty. It's their responsibly to fix.
