Honda Accord Leaking Gaskets May Allow Water into Tail Light Assembly

(62 reports)

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. -
gasket leaked around lights replaces gaskets working fine now -
Driver side tail light assembly fills with water. When the trunk is opened, the water pours out through the lamp socket into the trunk. I took the tail light assembly off the car and filled it with water. The water leaks out through the top edge between the lens and the black plastic body. A bead of silicone sealant along that top edge should fix the issue. Otherwise I'll need purchase a whole new assembly since the lens and black plastic body are glued together. -

I have the same problem. Water getting into the Passenger Tail Light and leaking into truck. Now, my taillight is filled with mold. I am thinking with all the people that have reported this problem, Honda should have had a recall on this part. Hope to get my fixed or replaced soon, at my own expense. -
