    I bought some of those cheap Ebay clear corners about a year ago and the weatherstripping has dried and cracked. One side the strip came off and was lost during driving. I had my OEM corner lamps for over 7 years and the weatherstripping never did this.
    So, I am paying the price for buying cheap aftermarket.
    Has anyone experienced this and discovered a fix? Is there something I can use to replace wihout having to buy new lamps?
    Thanks.
