Has anyone found the "cracks" or whatever flaw is causing the condensation?

Between the outer lens and the black back, or somewhere else?

I'm curious because if I decide to cut these open rather than warranty them, I'm going to want to fix the issue while I have them apart.

Will the dealership do this for me? Of you think they'd charge?? Where do I buy Dynamat, did you have it installed or do it yourself??

I've noticed if I just put my knee against my door and push while certain songs are playing it doesn't rattle..I've got to get it fixed!!

Before this gets too , if you search for dynamat I'm sure you can find the proper threads for this. But I did it myself.

Back on topic, I've had condensation built up in my passenger side light for over 2 weeks now, getting really annoyed. Hopefully I get a call from my dealership soon with new ones.

Yea I need to call my dealership as well. I'm already waiting on parts for the fuel pump. I'm a little worried about the condensation and the colder temps. This weekend the temp is supposed to drop down to the 30's.

So it finally rained... I did not find any tail light condensation, but found some in my front LED DRL instead.

Don't think I see any water inside yet, but there's definitely some condensation happening inside.

Does it look like it's a big enough problem to bring it into the dealer? What should I do?

I'd bring it in to the dealers to get it fixed, especially since winter is coming and you know how much it rains here in the lower mainland during winter time

Walked out of work last night to see that the passenger side had condensation. Yay.
