check for hairline cracks on the lens of the indicators, if there are any cracks, the moisture will keep coming back

take it out, leave it to dry, clean the lens and give it a coat of clear spraypaint, that should seal the cracks for a while

you remove the indicator as a unit, not a seperate lens/body

Could just be the glue that holds the outer cover on. Mine literally fell off the first time I was removing it, glue was fudged.

How much do Ford charge for new ones?
