Leaking gaskets around the tail lights can allow water entry into the tail light assembly. New gaskets should fix this concern.

    Water had leaked into drivers side rear brake light so I ended up using some caulking to seal it up

    Water leaking into both tail light housings. Passenger side is minor, driver's side fills about one third full with water and empties into trunk when trunk lid is opened. Probably just run a thin film of silicone caulking around tail light assembly, less cost and hassle than replacing gaskets.

    Passenger side tail light leaks water into trunk especially after it rains. Prior posts say replacing gasket does not work. No problem with driver side tail light.
