Re: Water in front indicator
I noticed that one of mine was cracked so I replaced it. £8 ish on eBay.
They have breather holes in them to allow for expansion/contraction of the air inside, so they are not designed to be waterproof. Excessive moisture does seem to point at a crack or failed seal, particularly as the breather holes are behind the lamps and therefore not likely to be affected by heavy rain.
The problem with indicators is that, unlike other lamps, they are never on long enough to heat up the lens & housing sufficiently to remove the extra moisture. However, this also means that they shouldn't be drawing excess moisture back in to the lens housing when they cool down!
