    I tried that, but the hole in the bottom of the cap let in more water when I went through some puddles.

    Best thing is to dry the unit out, then lay a dessicant pouch (moisture absorber) in the bottom of the cap.

    Or fit the snorkel kit. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...-fog-light-fix
