The taillight itself is vented, it has holes along the top edge and bottom edge of the housing just behind the lens. Make sure those holes are open, not clogged with dirt. The brake/turn bulb gets plenty hot, so I'm guessing as long as it's not burned out there's enough heat to chase any moisture out of the taillight. Also, there's a hose that comes from somewhere that connects to the rubber grommet through which the wire passed from inside the trunk out to the taillight. I am not 100% sure the purpose of that hose, but it sure looks like it's intended to blow air in behind the taillight, thus proving (most probably) cooling (which these lights desperately need)and (possibly) some airflow to chase moisture out of the cavity behind the taillight and possibly the taillight itself. It looks a lot like the rig they had to blow air into the distributor cap on the old 2-stroke Saabs to keep water out... It would be interesting when one has one of the taillights out to run the AC in the car and see if cool air blows out of the end of that tube and into the back of the taillight area. If anyone has a taillight out, run that test and let us know!
