This is a huge reason why I change to LED's, but the funny thing is, I had an F150 that would disable cruise control because it thought a bulb was out due to the lower voltage. Solved with the regulator or whatever it was called, but seriously... ford.... that was your solution to letting a driver know a bulb was out? smdh. Too complicated to put a lightbulb indicator in the dash or something... just disable a feature and make you wonder how screwed your electronics are.Probably should replace the broken brake light bulb while you’re there. I’m assuming you saw that already but just in case you hadn’t.
Housings like these melt very easily due to the heat on traditional bulbs then fuse around the bulb itself.
For a simple fix though, you can just get any old kind of foam sealer to keep the moisture out. Make sure it's not too thick and not too thin. Also a good time to clean out the housing. It's always satisfying putting something back together like this and making it all nice and new, or with LED's, better than new.
