    Hi
    Got our first rain last night and this morning the driver side Tail Light shows fog/condensation inside the housing of the light.
    I've seen this in the forum on early models, this is worth a service visit I guess, anybody else has had that issue lately?
    Thanks!

    Every one of my lights get wet inside when it rains. Looks like I need a service call.

    I'm not certain but I think the tail lights on the 3 are vented to the outside air. It would make fogging more likely temporarily but also can go away on its own.

    It could be, but it's been 3 days (not much sun) and it seems to only get worse. Tesla roadside has taken note and said it might be done with a ranger visit.

    I anyway got a screw in my tire and will have to visit the service center Monday to swap out the loaner wheel they installed on my car...
