Condensation in taillights?!?

Has anyone noticed this? It's beginning to happen more often than usual. Apparently the dealership says there's a TSB on this, but they won't replace the lens unless the dealership finds a crack. How lame I tell ya...

Not sure, my Pontiac's headlights used to do that.

Try taking the taillight loose, remove the bulbs and use a hair dryer to dry it out inside.

I had the same problem on my right side tail light last month or a couple of months ago. My dealership changed it out with no problem. I didnt notice any cracks myself. Unless they found the crack inside the tail light housing. But they did replace mine. No condensation here.

I have condensation in my passenger side taillight all the time. There is a TSB here http://www.xkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_xk_2303507.pdf
I just printed it out and will take it with me to the dealer. Try taking the TSB in with you. It says right on it that "A lamp that exhibits internal moisture permanently should be replaced."
Good Luck

I just got my left fog light replaced and the rear right is on order. They are replacing them with no problems.

I just got my passenger rear tail light changed because of moisture. The dealer had to order parts, which took a couple of days. No problem from the dealer.

Were the fog lights free of charge or under warranty? What year do you have?
