Water in headlights
I searched the post but only saw peeps concern on someones grammer. So I need some advice on how to get the moisture out and to prevent the moisture from returning. I checked my plug seals and they looked fine. After I wash or go thru bad rain I get the moisture, I am beyond warranty so I can't use that. Need some help, thanks for your time. goodtimes cheers thumbsup

My headlights are the same and beyond warranty also. I need a permanent fix other than new lights. I can't take my bulbs out and leave it in the sun every rain or washing. Baking them sounds interesting what about a heat gun use to melt paint on walls too much maybe? Any help?

this is what i would do. i'd remove the headlights and the bulbs. then take the headlights into the house. start looking for cracks and damage on the headlights. fix them up with some silicon. then when the silicon is cured, i'd fill the headlights up with distilled water. then i'd look where else the water is coming out. seal up where else water is coming out, besides the lil drain holes, with soem silicon. pour the water out and then let the headlights sit in the house until its fully dry. you might want to use a blow dryer on a low setting to help speed up the drying process. use distilled water because regular water will leave water markes when it dries up. distilled water shouldn't

I have had this problem, and the best way to fix it, is to remove the whole headlight assempbly, if you dont wnat to bake or take apart headlight, take out the blubs and put a small sponge on a stick and just work it from the blub holes after you soke up most of the water, seal all cracks and edges with silicone, i noitced that the headlight were fogging because of two exit gates on the bottom of the assempbly they look like little rubber pipes sticking out with sponges in them, you notice that they are not forming a good seal so moisture can get through and build up, just tear up a little piece of sponge, and stuff it in there till the seal is tight... re attached the headlight let it sit out in sun for a day, the seals should absorb the leftover moisture, this fixed my problems, and moisture never happend again...
