Rear lights

My rear driving lights, my right one is fine, the left one works fine but it is bright orange colour, i think the casing has faded. Does anyone else get this ?

its usually due to inferior aftermarket lenses...although it will eventuall happen to genuine items too.
Especially if always parked in the sun etc

are you 100% sure it is?
it may have been in a bingle and had one light replaced...

I have only presumed it is, perhaps it is not. It does make the car not look as good from behind, much like a VK commodore or one of that era, many of those seemed to have that problem.

Mine are slightly faded as well - not that anyone but me would notice :).

If you find a decent tail-light lense at a wrecker, that will be a good solution. Heck, they might even be affordable new from Ford.

sometimes moisture can get inside your lights or from past damp weather etc and is the reason why your light is faded.
whateva the reason buddy - best solution is the wreckers...they cost something like 20 bucks. Worth it.
Orange just looks tooo bad.

Just be glad you bought a EA and not a VN.... almost every VN I see has those ugly faded rear indicator lights. lol

Holden must have went cheap with the dye for the lenses on that model or something

We took out the lights cleaned that sponge gasket and put silcon around on it let it dry abit then put it back on. so far no more leaks and ther lights look new. after awhile the sponge thing shrinks and lets water through. i think u can buy a spray can iwth colours for lens from rare spares to maske them new again
