    I’m coming across the same exact problem. (probably why the bulb is burned out to begin with) How large of a hole or what type of bit did you use to get the water to drain? Where exactly on the seam did you place the hole? Has anybody tried plumber’s putty to seal the leaks (wherever the water is coming from…that is) help! thanks. :)

    I’m coming across the same problem with a 2003 Venture. What did you do about the water accumulation problem and how well did it work? thanks

  • 1aauto says:

    We haven’t received any complaints that this has been happening. What we do recommend is that, if you do buy them and if they come with bulbs installed, replace them with a decent set of bulbs. The factory sometimes leaves the test bulbs that they used to quality test the lights in them. Hope this helps you out.

    @ 1aauto as gunnerduke said below, i have a leaking headlight problem where water collects in the bottom of the headlight and slowly empties out, but leaves deposits and distorts the lens. do you know if your aftermarket headlight has this problem as well or is it leak free? Thanks, these videos are so helpful.

    just an fyi on this headlight.. I talked to many other owners and they had the same baffling problem….water getting in the headlight and blowing bulbs at an alarming rate. I resorted to drilling a tiny hole in the bottom of the headlight right where the seam was. I have had NO MORE bulbs blow. There were no cracks or deviations in the light before and the bulb was in correctly. we would go through many bulbs and always kept some in the glove box. NO MORE!

    Here’s a link to them on our website. There would be a ship charge to Canada. The site can calculate that for you.

    I loved this video… how much do the replacement outer lights cost? I live in Montreal Canada and thought that just replacing the inner light with GE Nighthawk Platinum’s would make the difference, but obviously the clearer plastic is why I didn’t get the results I was hoping for on my mom’s Van.

    samiraghda, you need to go to their shop and vounteer your car for the Aztek video ;)

    Saved me gazillions–or at least $10.

  • ZachAttackSenor says:

    wow.rust states.(could also been the fact the lights that were there before were pulled straight out, leaving behind piecies of the old plastic cover)
    The clamp on the bottom of the lights wouldn’t disengage whe I tried pulling the light out.

  • 1aauto says:

    HI, Thank you for watching our video. Currently we haven’t had an Aztek to do a video on in the shop.
