Went to the dealer, for some service.
Was made aware of some recall notices.
Rear door squeak, rear shackles and brakes.
Noticed that there was a check done on the front clearance lights, for leaks.
I had not noticed any.
Until today.
Interior lights up front, were leaking.
Obviously, clearance lights, now leaking.
How is this assembly removed.
The parts required for the recalls, are all on backorder, how nice.
I will seal the clearance lights.
Just want to dry the interior area out.
Other than this, I love the Promaster.
Thanks Guys

I figured it out.
Front interior light, clips in. Two tabs, pull down at the back of the light and pull down.
Unclip the light, 2 connectors, easy.
5mm allen key to remove the overhead glove box. 9 of them.
Dropped the overhead, had about 2 cups of water in it, dried out the assembly, siliconed the clearance lights, removed them then siliconed the bases and the holes in the roof, hope she holds.
Will let you know if, it stays watertight.
Check your clearance lights.

Mine did that a year ago.. water poured out from rhe dome light aftwr a good downpoor.
the dealer sealed the lights ontop of the van, and i guess the dome light dried out on its own.
good job on telling us how to get it off! Thanks for that

Ha Ha, it wasn't the clearance lights, themselves.
It was the screws, that secure the lights themselves.
There are small plastic inserts, that if overtightened, will leak.
I pulled all the inserts, easy with the headliner removed and siliconed them in.
Reinstalled the lights, then I applied a dab of silicone in the screw holes, put the screws back in, then a dab of silicone on the top of the screws to seal the hole.
I think I got it!
Will let you know.
Love a challenge.

removal

Pushing it to the side, seemed to do it.
Should pop right out.
Do not pry, no tabs to push in.
Do it when its warm.
Good luck.
