2013 Subaru BRZ: Taillight Condensation

November 19, 2012

Dewdrops, fogging, condensation in your BRZ/FR-S taillights? You're not alone, and neither are we. Our longterm 2013 Subaru BRZ has teary taillights, too.

Subaru of America released a Service Bulletin for this issue -- 12-131-12. Seems the mounting bolts on early cars were overtightened, cracking the plastic mounting boss and allowing moisture in. Apparently the fix is simply to replace the taillight housing. So that's what we'll have the dealer do at the next visit.

FYI the updated taillight housings were introduced into production cars on 09May2012 starting with VIN D*601678.
