Hi,
I have a '91 Carrera that always seem to have water condensation inside the signal lens, anyone knows how to get rid of the problem and also how to keep it from happening?

thanks.

i have the same problem in my '92, just in the little lens on each end. i thought it was just a "Porcheosipy" cause i have the same problem on my 944.

Unfortunately there's probably a hairline fracture in the plastic somewhere. The common fix when you can't find the crack is to drill a tiny pin hole somewhere in the lense to allow the moisture to drain and evaporate.

You either have to replace the entire lense housing or do the "pin hole" fix.

Here's the pin hole fix. At the lowest point in the lense drill a very tiny hole. You only need a hole as small as a needle so you'll probably have to buy a special drill bit. Leave the hole open this will allow the water to drain out and allow the condensation to evaporate.
