    Condensation in my side indictor

    Hi guys,
    Woundered if anyone knew how I can get rid of the condensation thats in my drivers side indicator.( One little on on the side, no the main head light unit)

    Do i need to take it off clen it out and put it back? How can I stop it from reoccuring?

    Thanks

    It can't be air tight then.

    Take it off, peal the back off, clean it out, and then seal it again, making sure you don't leave anything inside it and you seal it properly...

    If I were you i'd take the opportunity to buy a new one, smoked?

    Any sealant will do, as they are smoked you might be better off with a black sealant, try pu-flex.

    Thanks guys.
    Got it off and all dried out last night. Looks like there's a tiny crack thats letting the damp in.
    I'll look at some sealant and work out whats going to work.
    Cheers for the help
