So on my driver's side Depo Fog Light for the last few weeks there seems to be a perpetual colony of water droplets acummulating on the underside of the glass and the foglight seems to be jiggly inside the bracket and bobs up and down alittle. Well no problems until about three nights ago when I saw that my fog on that side was flicker off and on randomly. Now last light the light on that side came off and I had to stop the car and sort of kick it and it flickered back on...as if the bulb was loose in the socket....but I'm not exactly sure how...or how to get to the bulb itself.

Do you suspect its the water on that side? The passenger side fog has no water and it fits firmly (and not loose) into the bracket.

Anyone experience this and how would I refit it back in so the fog sits firmly in the socket ?

Finally how do I get the water out?


Thanks.
Delmarco

chr328is is an unknown quantity at this point
to let the water out, you just gotta take out the fog light, unplug it, then take out the bulb, then just let it sit in the sun for hours until it evaporates. I had the same problem, my stupid foglight filled up and looked like a fishtank. The depos fogs do suck but they look sweet. After I got the water out, I just taped that bitch up, all around the outside seal because thats where the problem is- they are not sealed right.
