I've heard that drilling a small hole in the housing to let the water/vapor out will help. Never had that problem myself.

are they ebay special tails? if so.. a lot of them do that.

drill a tiny hole near the bottom rear of the light.. also, grab some clear silicone and put a small bead to redo the whole seal around them.

also you can rinse the inside of the tail with rubbing alcohol. it evaporates and doesnt leave a stain or residue ring behind it.

ok i decided to try sealing them first.
-I took them off today (11/21/09) and turned them around until i found where the water was leaking from. (Go figure its in the top right corner where the water runoff is for the hatch).
-I wiped the inside as dry as i could through the reverse light hole and let it sit in the sun to remove the remaining fog.
-I then sealed the upper corner next to the hatch with clear rtv.
-suppose to have heavy rain tonight and tomorrow here in Georgia so we'll see how well it holds up.
-oh yea GO DAWGS!!!

UPDATE its been a couple weeks, we've had two or three heavy rain storms and no fog in the tail lights. clear RTV is holding up nice
