One of the headlights went on the wagon, so picked up some Sylvania Performance lights at Autozone. My fiberoptic lights on the fenders do not light up and the only one that does is the middle indicator/blinker light. Since I'm pulling lights I decided to see how/if it worked. Figured I'd post this here for any of the other boxies. Still haven't gotten them to work after the fix, but its better than when I started. Maybe try a different brand. Good news, I have two working headlights again.

Removed the old one.

Water in the bulb. Not good.

A look at the light socket. The little circle in the middle is where the fiberoptic cable gets its light.

Another angle.

To prove this, I shined my droplight into each socket and the fender did light up.

Looking at the new light, I thought it had some slot to shine through, but apparently not.
