  • Water in Silverado front turn signal lights

    I have tried to search good hints on what to do for front turn signals with Silverado kit, where signal lights are hanging below side lights. After every rain or wash water gets in signal lights. I tend to believe that it wont go in via lens O-ring, but is some sort of internal leakage due bulb is wet also always. IP design seem to be quite questionable in that area.

    I did turn them into parts last winter but nothing was broken. Rubber parts were good. Metal parts were quite heavily corroded due water. After cleaning I did install them very carefully, but still suffering on very same problem this season.

    What have you done to improve situation? (perhaps most of you want to propose throwing them to dark place, but I kind of like them )
    Thank you for your opinions already!

    Forgot to mention, that my bike is 1999. I do not know has that turn signal design changed later.

      Replace the 99 cent lens gasket.

    Can you give it a drain hole at the bottom?

      I wonder if the water is leaking past the driving lights and soaking down into the signals? Maybe check the passing lights as well.

        Can you silicone caulk where the wires go in? Or put yellow condoms over them!

          Need to think something to seal these lamps. Definitely water goes in from top via sidelamps, because bulbs are wet. Unfortunately siliconing might be hard due wires need to be able to move while bulb is replaced.

            Plumber’s putty that seals, but stays soft?
