Headlight Condensation

It seems like everytime i go through the car wash my left headlight gets all fogged up inside. don't know how watergets in, but i def. have some sort of leak. anybody know how to deal with this? The deadlight slowly clears up after about 2 weeks but it looks ugly.

The phone rings...a sexy voice says "hey baby nobody's home, come on over". So I go over and there's nobody home.

if you search on the forms you will find a ton on this. yea you need to do is take it out, dry it out to get any condensation left in. Then you need to get some silicon sealent and reseal the edges. then ur good ot go thumbsup thumbsup

Do a search there was a thread on this last week and in it I explained why they do it and how to get the moisture out with a shop vac

Take out the blinker bulb and the parking light bulb and get a shop vac then place the hose near/on the blinker bulb opening and let it suck for a while and that will clear the light in a few minutes thumbsup
