    Default Steamed up headlights! Any tips on solution?

    After washing today they really steamed up (facelift)

    I've taken back covers off to try let steam out! But still not clear! Guessing cause cold day, hot wash water!

    So what would you do? Take covers off? Or leave on? (I mean bulb access covers) also... If this is common fault, can they be re-sealed?

    Cheers for any tips,

    Mike

    Leave them off for a day or 2 while running round with the lights on, that should do the trick

    Leave the covers off while the car sits parked facing sunlight.
