I bought a set of clear corners off of ebay, and they look great, but I have read on here that they tend to get water inside of them when it rains. Peolpe have said to put silicone and electric tape around it to prevent that. My question is where put the silicone? perhaps just in the little holes? and where to put the electrical tape? Pictures would help. Thanks all.

I don't think that any water gets into them unless the plastic gets cracked somehow.

Yeah, I've had a pair on mine for a year and bought them used, and still don't have a problem with 'em.

I've had my clear corners on for about a year now and the one on the driver side always gets condensation in it. It's a real PITA. I have put silicone around the edges and it still gets condensation in it. Now with new headlights on the car, the clear corner really stands out. I may just buy another set of clear corners. :zdunno: Now the one on the passenger side is fine. I've never had a problem with it.

Well I put them on, and then washed my car and no water got in. Hopefully none will get in. Thanks for the input.

do you still have the little gasket that seals the rear of the bulb once it is in? if not that might be why,

I dunno, but I just put my factory corners back in because the clear corners looked stupid with one having condensation in it. What does this "gasket" look like so I can tell if it is missing or not; if the factory corner gets condensation in it, I guess thats what the problem is.

it looks like a little sponge rubber donut that goes behind the lugs on the connector, mine have it and i never had a prob with the water/condensation getting in the originals, or in the clear corners that i got used from 96dirtybird, i dunno if they all have them but i know mine do.

How do you change the lights for the clear corners? Same process as the headlight light switching? Or am I giong to have to unscrew the clear corners?

Same process. Twist bulb, pull out. Undo clip, pull bulb. Push new bulb in, snap clip around bulb, insert in clear corner and twist
