Tail lights full of water
 
I found my two tail lights full of water today, going to repace with LED but wanted to ask if there is a brand a should look for. Do I need to replace the rubber grommet.

It was very diffucut pulling out the grommet, I just grabbed one end and pulled, not sure if there is a better way.

Any tips on installing new light with grommet.

Light info - model 60 truck lite

thanks

Always a good idea to replace the grommet when changing lights. A little soapy water hels everything slip into place.

You could also try Hand Sanitizer.... it evaporates.

The alcohol probably isn't the greatest thing for the grommets. Binding lube would work well too, but a few drops of liquid dish soap into a quart of water is probably your best bet.

I honestly don't know what effect Rubbing Alcohol would have, I only that bike shops use it to install bike grips. I'll assume the Evaporation helps keep the grips in place where soap would be problematic.

I agree that the application here is probably better suited for soap. (I'll use soap for mine)

I can see using hand sanitizer on bikes where you don't want any residue left behind to allow the grips to slip.

Project complete, did not take to long. Soapy water helped, they kinda float within the rubber gasket.

thanks for tips
