Tail Light Condensation

For months now I've noticed condensation inside the right tail light of my 2013 JKU. It does not appear to go away. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what the fix is.

Happily, this is the only issue to be reported after 7,000 miles!

Take it to the dealer and have them replace it. I just had to have mine replaced. The dealer did it no questions asked.

It's a poor seal on the lamp housing, which is a manufacturing defect and a known issue to Chrysler.

Thanks for the info. I will visit my dealer ASAP.

Same issue here on my 2014 a few months after I got it. Dealer swapped it no questions. Don't let it stay like that too long. The condensation can cause corrosion inside the housing and possibly on the wiring.
