The halogen bulb in the passenger-side fog light of my 2018 Altima was out. Upon closer inspection, approximately 3/4" of water had collected at the bottom of the enclosure. When I removed the bulb, I found it was broken. I assume the bulb blew out when water splashed on the lit bulb.

When I removed the two bulbs from the fog light enclosure, they seemed to be seated properly. I did a water leak test and the lens seems well attached to the enclosure and the lens is not cracked.

1. Has anyone else had similar problems in either the driver- or passenger-side fog lights?

2. Does anyone have any idea how the water may have collected in the enclosure?

Thanks!

If the enclosure is healthy then pretty much the only thing left is a bad or improperly-seated bulb gasket. The best way to check the enclosure seams is with soapy water, cover the outside and gently blow air through the bulb hole. You'll get bubbles anyplace there's a leak.
