Water INSIDE Headlights!!! Why You NEED to run Fender Liners
I packed in a ton into Wednesday last week. We visited my family's old building they recently sold, to look at getting new racks for the shop. Then we drove down the street to Aerowerkz to help with the GTR and check out a customers car with reported leaking in the headlight.
What I found made a lot of sense. The car is slammed static, and to make room for the drop, or possibly just while driving on the road, the passenger side fender liner was completely gone. The result was a light filled with water, that caused the LED low beam to fry inside the light.
HUGE lesson to anyone watching. Those fender liners are there not only to protect against the water that can continuously soak the back of the lights, potentially filling drain plugs and even getting water up through them, but also also to act as a shield against rocks and debris that can put holes, cracks, and chips in the back of the lights.
