    Have you checked the seal inside the cover, they can perish.

    Sometimes you can't tell if seal is doing it's job, try a bit of silicone sealeant round it after you dry condensation first, failing that a new cap costs £5.95 at dealers.

    When i fitted my hids a month ago, i drilled the bulb holes far too big for the supplied gromits.

    the result is was the gromits are a very loose fit and certainly not airtight. I decided against sealing with silicon and decided to wait and see what would happen.

    I have had no misting up whatsover.....even after driving 3 weeks in heavy snow and rain
