Water in my left brake light (rear)

I was wondering how to remove the lens so I can drain the water and I was also wondering why this was happening. Any suggestions or tips, thanks! 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X

Like deekum1627 said, probably just a seal. Replace or as I did got cheap on my Montero when that happened and drilled a couple holes in the bottom. Water gone... Of course it always looked a little cloudy but didn't feel like spending money on it at the time.

I did the same thing with an '02 Malibu. The seal seemed fine and I couldn't see where it was getting in. I drilled some holes in the bottom and the problem was solved.

I agree it was perplexing. Never could figure our how the water was getting in there!

I can't believe nobody said anything about the blinker fluid being low!
