Default elusive fog light assembly

My passenger side assemble keeps getting water in it, I attempted to take it off and seal it myself but for none the better, it's full again. Every time I look for one online it always shows me the round design and not the rectangle that I have on the later models. Any idea where to find this part?

not sure where to find the part, but silicon II is great stuff for sealing it up, but leave the drip/breathe hole in the bottom (if it has one) so that condensation can escape (humid days like to build up water in headlamp housings when it gets cool overnight). Also, check the seal on the bulb socket to make sire water isn't getting in that way. The drip hole may just be clogged with dirt and need to be cleaned out.

Default thanks

Right on, thanks, I'll try it, I cleaned out the assembly and the bulb socket/seal but did not leave a drip hole at the bottom. I'll give it a shot, thank you....

just note that if there isn't a drip hole, you shouldn't need to make one.

If you are still having issues you can check out a junkyard called crazy rays if you have one in your area...
