Question about 2006 Ford Freestyle

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Freestyle. I noticed that in the past 3 years, that there is a little water inside the right rear tail light lens in the back up section. I have run all kinds of test to see if there is a crack or bad seal, but all test show no leaks. But the big problem is that there is water leaking inside the right rear side where the spare wheel is located. The carpet and under lament are damp whenever it rains. I can not figure out where it is coming from. This car has never been in any accidents. Does anyone have any ideas? Also, how difficult would it be to remove all the inside paneling so I could remove the last row of seat to see if I can see where the water is coming in from. Would this be covered under warranty as we have only 41K miles on the car?

Check your rear door seals. Sometimes the get pinched when door is shut and water leaks through or under seal. Take it to a self serve car wash and pressure wash corner in question.

The rear brake light / blinker for my 2006 Ford Freestyle is not working I have tried to replace the bulb and it still does not work what do I do


The most likely culprit is the circuit board in the tail light assembly. Doorman makes a replacement that fastens to the rear of the lens assembly. They usually are in the range of about $70 depending on the vehicle. Also check to see if the pigtail is burnt out on the plug. If so, you will need to find a donor pigtail to fix that as well.

How to change a tail light


1. Remove the two screws at the outside back of the tail light cover
2. loosen the tail light cover from the two clips at the front of the cover by gently prying it toward the rear. Fingernails worked for me. The bottom clip seemed easier. If it is too tight, try a screwdriver near the bottom, then near the top prying toward the rear of the car.
3. the top light is the backup lamp (white), and the bottom light is the brake/turn/rear light (red).
4. rotate the lamp 1/3 turn to remove and replace.
5. test.
6. replace the cover by aligning the screw holes then pushing the cover into the clips and replacing the screws.

Remeove rear combination tail light cover 2006 Nissan XTERRA


thode screws hold the lens or the light assembly? Allow for the whole tail light to come out and the bulb plug will be accessible. I never had the privilage. But how the lens fits will tell you. If the lens goes overthe edges, the whole unit comes out, lens is sealed. Good luck

Water in tail lights


I had the same problem a few years ago with an 86 Volvo. I replaced the tail light assemblies but over time water was getting inside the lens again. My solution to the problem was to remove the tail light assemblies and drill a small hole (about 3/16") on the bottom of each compartment of the lens (if the tail light is sectioned off) and a 1/16" vent hole in the top or side area where it can't be seen. It worked for me and it didn't cost a dime. Hope this helps.
