Rust icicle from side marker light

This is what I noticed coming in the driveway today after work. The roof is clear so it looks like the 3 month old side marker light is rusting out. Unreal!

More than likely the rust is coming from the chassis somewhere but leaking through the marker light. Rust is associated with ferrous metals (steel, iron, etc), which means the chassis, engine, etc is getting wet.

Since aluminum does not rust (which is probably what the metal parts of the marker light is made of), I'd guess the light fixture is just acting as a conduit for a leak somewhere - perhaps around the windshield,etc.

Hey FW28Z, you are probably correct, at least I hope so! Will find out when the ice melts I guess! Thanks!
