    common one, this

    Mine does it occasionally. Stick a piece of cardboard over the foglamps and drive with them on for a while and it should clear.

    I don,t know about your head light, but I am told that over filing the washer bottle, the overspill can get into the nearside fog light.

    The headlamp problem is strange though. Sounds like it has a dodgy seal in there, where did you get them from mate?

    I've heard both good and bad about them, why not call them on Monday and see if they'll swap it over for you..

    If your light is recessed enough in the bumper, you could use some clear bathroom silicone sealant on the seal edges, make sure you dry it out 1st though, only downside is if you need to change a bulb you'll have to pick the sealant off and reseal after, thats if they wont send you another one that is. hth.
