I wish I had taken a picture of the inch and a half of water that I recently had to remove from one of my tail lights, not to mention the pool of water that drained in to my toolbox and soaked the boot insulation (which took forever to dry out). That would make it pretty clear! To answer your question, these stop that from happening if your old ones have perished with age.

Here are a couple of images of what the problem is, i am sure many of you have experienced this, apart from the lucky few that have not had an issue yet.

The below image shows water collecting in the lights. in extreme cases we have seen it as high as the bulbs.

you can actually see the line of water in this rear light cluster.

Also cheaper than a pair of the RotaryFX gaskets shipped from the USA! :thumleft:

However, no sealant included? The RotaryFX ones include a small tube of silicone sealant. Or do these neoprene ones not need it?

Hahaha,

Well my right hand light has decided to turn into a misty mess again, so perfect timing Essex! Superb service, ordered mine Tuesday and they've already arrived, along with the complimentary Haribos.

Doesn't half make you feel good when things just work out.

This is currently driving me mad on my car. Ive had the passenger rear light off at least 5 times now. (at least I'll know what I'm doing if I ever blow a bulb)

My question is... Will these fit an R3 or are the S1 gaskets different?

Stupid question time - do these fit the R3?

My (damage repaired) offside rear is a small swimming pool, and I hope the bottom two LEDs which are "out" are just shorted with the water...

But I need to remove, drain, and hopefully just replace gasket... But I have a nasty feeling I'm going to find it full of silicon sealant, because there was a damp boot after the repair - and they fixed it "on the spot" when I complained...

Thanks for the feedback Dan.
It seems this is becoming a bigger issue with the R3 now.

I've had the issue on 2 R3s now, not so fun...

These are working great so far, though :) I think it's an age thing that's starting to expose these issues on the R3...
