Thanks!!!

Damn...I also forgot to add that the farthest bottom of the taillights rubs the window...that is the biggest problem I'm concered with...also the fact that the reverse lights don't screw into their housing they jst kinda fit in and can come out real easily...

I warned you! lol
I had those same taillights except in silver. They left a big gap and the weatherstripping was starting to come off and looked like crap. I'd get rid of them. I sold mine about a month and a half ago. But then again, mine never leaked. Or not to my knowledge cause I checked them to make sure all the time. I guess if you wanna keep them you could superglue the stripping back in place. Not sure what to tell you about the bulbs just fitting in there and not screwing in. You get what you pay for!

run over the lights with your car a couple of times. that should fix the problem. if not, you might want to try a torch.

There's no fixin' them. I agree with assasin, run 'em over a few times!!! And yes, you can open them. Use a strong paint thinner and terry cloth, go around the edges until it loosens and then just pull the silicon off. (I don't really recommend it) Do whatever ya gotta inside the light, then re-seal it with weather-proof home depot silicon. Good luck with whatever ya do.

This isn't always true, but EBAY SUCKS especially for things like car parts that you haven't seen before.. only ebay stuff you have seen in person, or you know what it is..Try a local shop to see what you are getting when you buy them.. sorry dude, lesson learned??
