It accumulates in there any time it rains.

Does anyone know how exactly the water travels to get in there? (My trunk is completely dry.)

Thanks.

I had the same issue and never could find the source. I simply drilled a couple tiny holes in the bottom clear lens so it would drain. I never had an issue for many years. The bulbs and connectors never seemed to get wet, so there was no corrosion. I'd suggest you do the same.

You could try to remove it and seal the seams on the housing with clear silicone. It's the same procedure for sealing the corner parking lamps when they get condensation inside.

Also, it's possible for it to seem like the trunk is dry, then you remove the spare tire and there is a quart of water in the well. I have found that cleaning the channel around the trunk seal of debris, cleaning the sealing surfaces, and putting clear silicone grease on the rubber seal helps immensely. It's a night and day difference.
