Just picked up a CPO’d DB9 GT and noticed after the dealer washed it the rear lights were full of condensation.... one worse than the other. Dealer says it’s not covered by CPO that it’s only covered if the lamps fails? Seams like a water leak IS a failure unless they were designed to be water cooled (sarcasm)
A comprehensive inspection and right from AM website:
  • EXACTING MECHANICAL & AESTHETIC STANDARDS
Is condensation in a taillight considered an “aesthetic standard”

Makes me wonder about more serious issues if something like this is simple accepted.

Clearly a known issue as I see lots on here about it but my question though, is the dealer jerkin me around or do they really not fix these on a CPO or CPO process?

Thanks,

Normal for AM 😁.
U can remove it and make a small hole downside. Then block it with Clay when it's back normal.
Or check uTube there are some ppl suggest some kind of sprays 🤔

My Vantage GT rear light was covered through Timeless, but they left it outside for a week before looking at it so it was literally half filled with water by the time they got to it. Makes it kind of hard to say no. The replacement is already starting to show condensation so it's unfortunately a fact of life with the stock lights. There's a video from Redpants on how to fix the issue.
