2014 + Highlander Rear Tail Lamp Condensation

Recommended Posts

Curious to find out if anyone has had this issue with the new body Highlander. The rear-passenger lens has been replaced four times at a Toyota dealer but continues to exhibit water getting in the lens.  

Not one issue with the opposite lens, only the passenger side.  Perhaps it is an installation issue with improper servicing technical requirements, design issue, defect, etc?  

Anyone have insight into this?

The manufacturer for the Highlander tail lamp assembly is North American Lighting. Not sure if they do the Lexus 760A lamps but you should be able to see either "N.A.L" or "North America Lighting" embossed on the housing if they do make it.

Basically Toyota told me to keep taking it back to the dealer and there was no bulletin related to this issue.

I have a 2015 Highlander XLE where the left side had the moisture.

I just bought it pre owned. It has 36,000 miles. The dealer replaced it as part of the sales deal. I hope this isn't going to be an on going problem.
