Rear break light leak

Noticed last night that the rear center break light was not flush to the rear glass. There is about a 1/4 inch gap. As a results, at night, when stepping on the breaks it also light up the cargo area in red. It wasn't a big deal before I noticed it. Once I noticed it, it is annoying. Always looking into the rear view mirror on a stop sign. I'll probably get some black tapes to block the gap.

I had no such issue with my Integra and older Hondas, strange!!

Checked the rear brake light housing more carefully last night. It is definitly a fit and finish problem. There is about a 1/4 inch gap between the housing and the rear glass. The gap extend all the way across the top trim piece of the tailgate. I can push it in and can see that if fitted correctly, there will be no light leak.

I'll see if the dealer can doing anything when I have time.

Can more people check and see if there are more cases of this?
