Moisture In Headlight

Recommended Posts

How hard is it to reseal the headlight on a 04 es? Only on on side. Never wrecked. Getting some moisture on the inside. Comes and goes. Thanks.

Tim,

You might try removing the headlight from the car (not really that hard) and use a hair drier or heat gun to blow air into the bulb openings. There may be a small rubber tube on the back of the unit that is missing or plugged that is supposed to allow for the moisture to dissipate I believe.

I've done this on the same problem with a Nissan 300ZX and it did the trick for me. Good Luck!

Thanks for the info. The moisture goes away after about 8-10 hours. Doesn't happen all the time. I'll give this a try. Thanks.

gbhrps gives good advice. I used the same technique on one of my taillight assemblies. It doesn't take much moisture to produce what looks like a LOT of condensation on the inside of the lens.
