Tail light question.

Hey guys... I was leaking water into my trunk, and I found that the source was indeed the gasket that goes between the tail light and the frame. Anyway, as I removed me passenger tail light, I realized that it is FILLED with water... I mean like a couple cups worth of water were in that bitch (also... some dufus that owned the car before me dropped a ****ing bulb in there and just left it in... it wasn't even hard to get out... I just shook the thing upside down and it fell out within about a half a minute lol).

Anyway, my question is, how do I open these up? Do they need to be baked like the headlights? Or can they simply be opened up?

Pretty sure that they have to be baked to be opened up.

Well that blows... I guess I'll just leave the condensation that is left over in there and save up to buy some new ones... this way I can open these ****ers up and not have to worry about breaking one and being SOL. Maybe I'll do an LED tail light project.
