    Also vx did a snorkel mod that can be fitted to the rear of the light which stops this all together. I had to replace my passenger side fog light a few months back as it was cracked and the new one came with the snorkel and has never misted up.

    Snorkels are done as the VX "fix". Didn't fix mine though...

    They were done under warranty for me.
