Thumbs up

I just bought some really good Piaa LEDS for my side markers in hope this will be the last time I change them for a long time.

Since they bulbs are rather expensive I want to seal the side markers so there is no chance and water or condensation gets inside(I think that's what caused failure with my last sets). So to the people who have used some kind of elastomer or silicon -- what have you used. I just want a good seal but nothing permanent incase the bulb does fail and I need to replace it.

Thanks

Matt

Same here i recentky changed my led's in my sidemarkers, they been on for a good while now, but since my last car wash, somehow the condesation was in excess and the bulb blew but th eother one was fine on the other side, im thinkin the car wash guy sprayed a little to much in that one spot..

All you have to do is put a skim coat of clear silicone sealant around the seam where the lense and the reflector meet.It will hold it as there were alot of people that had the same problem.
