    Default Sri Driving Lamps - condensation

    I know the weather isn't helping, but I am getting problems with condensation in one of my driving lamps.I had one (not sure which) replaced under Warranty (allegedly) but can't remember which. If it IS only the weather, why am I getting it on only one and not both? Is this common?

    Take the bottom off,nick your Mrs' hairdryer,unless you're a pretty boy then use your own,and blast away then when all condensation gone put the bottom on and really tighten it up! if that fails the glass is loose!

    Another way is to leave one of those little silica packets you get with stuff that gets delivered, got some in my slippers at christmas!!! Just pop one in the back of the lens and let it absorb all the moisture, great for this time of the year!!!

    When you say "driving lamps" are you in fact refering to the FOG lamps?

    Probably,I thought they were classed as 'driving lamps' on the front of the Sri.I've used them now and again when visibility has been poor due to heavy rain (Scotland!) when driving to work at night.

    Same lights are used on my Elite (facelift) as on the SRi (facelift), and the same lights that were used on my Elegance (prefacelift) were also used on the SRi (prefacelift)

    In both my handbooks they're referred to as front fog lights.

    Driving lights are generally above the bumper centre and should only come on with main beam (also known as spot lights)
