Water In Head/taillights


 Share

Recommended Posts

I tried searching for the topic and couldnt find it, so I apologize for the repeated tpoic as Im sure it's been discussed alot. Anyways Is there a way to fix this issue? I have a 92 and the front right headlight has water in it. It still works and lights up but kinda bug. The tail light has a tiny bit to. It leads to fogging and water drops on the inside. Thanks. I was thinking of putting a blowdryer to it :P

you could oven the lights and open them and then clean them yourself. Then you could reseal with a silcone sealant.

this would probably be best method for ultimate cleanness, IMO

There have been few posts that teach u step by step on the procedure.

do a search on clear corners in the ES forums.

I had water in the headlights of my '01 ES a month ago (thanks to my dealer for leaving the hood open on rainy days at the service lot) :rolleyes::censored: What I did was the following:

- Disconnected the wiring and removed the headlights from the car.

- Brought the headlights inside the house and removed the bulbs.

- Hooked up 2 plastic straws together and sucked as much of the water as I could from inside the headlights. Spat the water out and into the sink.

- Placed the headlights inside the oven and had them cooked at the lowest cooking temp. for 5 min.

- Repeated the cooking cycles until I see no more fogging/condensation inside the headlights.

- Let the headlights cool off at room temp. for 10-15 min.

- Installed the bulbs, reconnected the wiring and installed the headlights back to the car.

I know some people will be disgusted by the water-sucking technique (not recommended for everyone) but it worked for me, and I haven't had any condensation since then :cheers:
