Ram puddle light defect (Mods Sticky this for all 4th gens)
 
Just want to let everyone know that the 4th gen puddle lights are not properly sealed from the factory and will become water logged and corrode. Both left and right on my truck are corroded already.

I just picked up another puddle light from a 2011 and you can visibly see the two halves are not properly sealed and it had some water in the unit.

YOU CANNOT BUY JUST THE PUDDLE LIGHTS FROM DODGE
(You must buy the entire mirror assembly)

**save yourself time and money and reseal yours with some silicone!**

Thanks for the info. I will be pulling mine out this weekend to look at them. Is it hard to get them out of the mirror? is there a "trick" to it? and rep to you for the heads up, thanks bro

I read some where that if you rotate the mirror a certain way, you can get to the clip holding the glass in, once the glass is removed, you can access everything else

this video shows the problem, but not the actual replacement

what the hell is a puddle light?

Just took a quick look at the lights, and I wonder how the mirror comes apart? Something was mentioned about a clip for the glass? Anybody have a little more info on the mechanics of this? Thanks
