Helix Side Marker gone bad

Its been 8 months and these side markers did not make their 1st year. Anyway I decided to remove them and change out the burned LED bulbs when this happened...

yes, the glue is crap. some 2-part clear epoxy will do much better.

One of my Helix ones also came like that. As a temporary fix, run a bead of plastic cement / plastic JB weld.

Then reseal with silicone
