Head Lights
Im not sure if its normal for your head light to have water moist inside of it or not. Is that normal? I could replace for a new one $190 for each head light.

It happens. They are not sealed all that great. Just take it out, dump it & let it dry. Make sure the seals on the back are on tight after that.

First i resealed everything, didn't work...

Then i took it to toyota and claimed the condensation was in the headlights when i first got it...right.

I had the same problem, take it to your dealer and have them look at it. Through all the rain florida gets in the summer, i have not had my lights get condensated after i took it to toyota

Does it cost you anything to let toyota to have a look at it?

My head lights look kinda dirty also so I want to clean it out. I've read on how to do that and such. There is a step where you have to actually put it into the oven so that you can remove the plastic of the head light thing. Is that step neccessary?

^^heck yeah it's neccessary..if you don't put it in how will you melt the epoxy/clue??? unless you plan on using the hairdryer for that, if you like to get urself burn then do that..hey i got condensation in my headlight even b4 i pull off the dealer's parking lot..they are so dumb that they said, "oh it's just because the headlight haven't been use for sometime, that's y htere are condensation in it" fuck one side had it but not the other side..dumbass dealer..

so after i had the car for like a month later i just took it out and put it in the oven..while i was at it i painted my headlight too..kill 2 bird with one stone man..since then it has never ever condense again, and it's been like 5-6months now..so if i can do that, you can..just follow the step carefully and u'll get it done..take about 5hrs total for me..so yeah, go do it..

I can't fit a headlight in my oven, and my oven is fairly big.

Yeah, but if I put it at an angle, then part of the headlight would come too close to the metal coils, and even though they were off, they still generated enough heat to melt it a little, and it did.

weird..was the rack at the bottom slot?? did you lay the on it back side facing up??

cuz i did that and there were plenty off room left to move without hitting the coil..maybe ur oven are smaller then mine..??
