My lamps have water in them for the third time,
how can I stop this from happening?

Some moisture inside the lamp is normal. The lamp should dry out after a few minutes of operation. If it doesn't, check the following:

1) The lens may be upside down. The PIAA name must read right side up so the vent on the bottom can drain.
2) The lens/reflector unit may not be mounted tight against the lamp housing. Loosen, then re-tighten the screws.
3) The gasket may be twisted or pinched. Some gaskets have a vent gap.Make sure it's on the bottom.
4) Lamps with a "Snorkel" type wiring grommet in the back of the housing must have the opening facing down.
5) 9O Pro lamps have a vent on the back of the housing in the center. The opening must be facing down. Water leaks through an obvious gap in the sealant or from a loose lens are defects covered under warranty.

Can I mount my lamps upside down?

When mounting your PIAA lamps opposite of their intended installation, remember that lamps with a "Snorkel" type wiring grommet in the back of the housing must have the opening facing down. Also, the PIAA name must read right side up so the vent on the bottom can drain. 9O Pro lamps have a vent on the back of the housing in the center. The opening must be facing down.
