If your car is under warranty just go to your dealer and ask them to fix it for you... wave

you'll have to take it apart, polish the inside, and reseal it.

Gotta use an oven, and have about 1-2 days to work on this for it to be perfect.

Or, live with it.

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

Seems like a common problem with the celi lights. I think toyota should own up to the problem, and fix it for free. Even my lights fog up whenever I wash it. Especially the driver side light, which fills up with water.

Doesn't exactly look trick with water in your headlights. But, maybe fill'em up and put gold fish in there? Hmmmmm.
Gold fish with vinyl graphics. Carbon look vinyl. Nice.
Or...maybe not.

I have that problem too. I get condensation at times. I think I'm gonna do the oven thing when it gets warmer around here. Might be a good time to do Angel Eyes...hmmm...

if you have a gf or your mom has one of those powerful hair dryers you can use it on your headlight, just dont aim to close


this is the easiest way tho, it shouldnt take more than 10 minutes
