Customer may comment about water/discoloration/moisture in the tail lamp. Water may leak in from bulb socket back seal. In some cases the tail lamp
housing replacement is necessary.
With a hose: Verify the water is not entering the area from the outside. If the water is from the outside replace the lamp assembly.
If the water is NOT entering from the outside, replace the harness only. See the following for the harness replacement method.
Remove the tail lamp and inspect the bulb holder to ensure the harness alone will repair.
Note the open seam of the bulb holder this is the source of the water intrusion.
