Default 997.2 Rear Reflector Strip moisture


Looks like there could be some moisture in behind the reflective strip on the rear lid - between the tail lights.
Any idea how to remove this strip and fix the moisture from getting in there?
TIA

Bumping this as I have the same question. My reflector has some moisture under it and it’s driving me nuts. Is it hard to take off and clean?

I too am cursed with this, despite the car sitting in a dry garage for a while now. Ideas would be boss!

So I know there are 2 torx screws that need to be removed, one off each side, but I am unsure as to how to remove the rest of the bar without: 1 - Breaking the anchors or 2 - Cracking the bar.

I was lifting on one side, and got the first anchor to give, but it broke, and then when trying to get the next one, I put a hairline crack in the backside of the reflector. At that point I quit. I have not gone back to trying, but the clips that hold the bar in place are not replaceable, and hold really well.
