Lightbulb Do you have consistent water retention in your 96up stang (fishbowl lights)

This may only apply to places that get consistent rain...Seattle for instance...but I've blown at least 3-4 bulbs from water getting into the foglights. I thought it was getting in thru the foglight rubber seal. Well, it turns out both fog lights on my 96 GT have cracks in them at the top of the housing (black part). Never noticed the crack til I just blew into the housing and water bubbled up. Since it's in both I figure it may be some defect...or just old age, I dunno. Either way, if you have this problem, I'd seal it properly and that should solve the problem. I remember posting or reading this a long time ago (though not sure if it was this site) when I couldn't figure it out and others had this problem. I never got a true fix for it so I help this helps anyone.

Just drill a hole in the bottom of each housing to let the water back out.
