I decided to take a look and see if I had a crack on the taillight assembly that is described in the TSB.

I saw no cracks, but I did notice the following...

- The foam piece in the back of my taillight is only glued on the top. Not sure if that is normal or not, but I was able to drain the water in the back of my taillight assembly by lifting the bottom up like a flap (pic below).
- There are circle shaped tears around all four of the bolts (pic below). Again, not sure if that is normal or not, but I didn't see this in the PDF of the TSB.
- I was able to drain a lot of the water that was stuck in my taillight by just tilting the taillight in different directions. The two places that I noticed the water coming out of was from the turn signal and from two of the four circle tears (pic below).

Water in taillights for over a week.

Notice the rips where you screw in the nut. Looks like imprint of the nut b/c it was screwed on too tight.

It was really inside and both lamp was affected, the right one was really last visible.

He said they needed to document it for Subaru. The guy at this dealership was a bit of a jerk. This was the same guy who earlier told me it was normal for the front and rear to fog up a bit. He also told me to stay off the forums because I'll be hearing things that don't really exist! What a moron. This was my first and possibly last experience with them.
What dealer did you go to?

I'm in range for this TSB. Not going to accept "waiting" for condensation to appear. That's absurd.

Don't have time to read through the entire thread but...

Brought my FR-S in for a leaky passenger side tail light 2 days ago.

In Canada (or maybe just Ontario) the replacements are on backorder as clearly there are a number of units to be replaced. I think they said there was something like 19 on order.

Might take a while so in the meantime people will admire my car and question the quality control when they see the water.

Damn, makes me wonder was Toyota/Subaru rushing to market? Seems like a lot of little stuff popping up making me think 2x about getting an FRS.

Called the dealer the next day, of course it had dried out by then. I didn't like the fact that the asked if I just read about the tsb on a forum or really had the issue. I said I took a pic, he claimed he has not seen the issue and its not as big as the forums probably make it out to be. I then reminded him that we live in Arizona and don't get as much rain as the other states. Gotta try and duplicate it now and bring it in.

Try washing your car, I got the condensation 24hours after washing.

But I just got mine replaced at the dealership a few hours ago, so never again (hopefully)
