Drill a tiny whole or 2 in the lowest part of the light, it'll drain & dry, it fixed the lights on my son's old Falcon and saves farting around trying to seal them.

Default Thanks

Thanks for the help I will defiantly try that but any idea how the water gets in I asume it's a hole somewhere but if there's a hole for it to get in id think it should have drained out.

many thanks

Nah usually the tops of the lights cop all the sun and the seals just deteriorate over time, no holes for drainage as they aren't supposed to leak, once the water is drained the heat from the sun/globes will dry them pretty quick. I think I used a 2mm drill bit or whatever was the smallest I could fit in the drill.............Just don't try to drill through glass but yours should all be plastic, if not hit the backing plates.
