I have noticed water in the brake lights...notice when I shut the trunk...

we are not talking a little bit...with the round looking cover, it is half full.

we have had a wet summer, but this is not right.

no cracks in the cover.

how is the water getting in?

how do I fix?

im assuming your talking about your corner lights? if i were you id remove it to find out where it is allowing moisture to enter... thats the first step... ull have to unscrew some twist things in your trunk... u can take them out without tools... and pull back carpeting a little to get to the hidden ones... should be like 2 or 3 per side i forget... but somewhere in your housinng isnt sealed correctly
