I have this issue too.





Passneger Side only from what it seems. I haven't noticed it on the driver's side yet. It may rain tonight so if it does, I'll keep an eye on it as well.

I noticed condensation on my passenger-side tail light, as well.

I'm going to set up an appointment with my Subaru dealership this next week.

Sorry to hear. When was your delivery date for this vehicle? I think you may be the first BRZ that has this problem so far!... Hope it gets resolved soon.

That was one of my questions, is it only happening on the passenger side or have people had it occur on both sides?

Washed my car about 1 hours ago, condensation in drivers side tail light. Went to dealer, he said I have to bring it in and show it to service when they are open.

My WRX had the same problem years ago. It was the thin seal between the light and the body that let water in; I had a trunk full of water! I took out the light, seal it back with RTV. The RTV seal should last a couple life time of the car.

Why go through the hassle of fixing it yourself, when it is a known issue by Toyota and its covered under warranty?

Angry

Took my BRZ to the dealership today to get them to order a new taillight for me.

They referred me to TSB 07-59-07 (12/17/2007) and sent me on my way *without* ordering a replacement taillight.

They said it's normal for condensation to form in the taillights & headlights. The only way they would order a new unit is when there's standing water within the housing.

That was a waste of an hour's drive. Damn.

Sigh. I'll see if I can get a new one ordered for warranty on Wednesday when I go to the dealer.
