    Question Condensation in Headlight

    For some reason I keep on getting a build up of condesation in my O/S Headlight. (not the foglight)

    I have checked for damage, etc and all seems to be ok and the rear seals are in place.

    I am about to try drying out with a hairdryer but wondered if anyone else has had a similar problem and has any alternative cures

    any help appreciated

    Mark GSi recommended getting hold of those small packets of silca gel. He puts them on a paperclip and hangs them off the back of the bulb fitting, inside the light, and this sorts out the fogs and head lights. I will be doing it when I get enough packets of gel. Only got 2 so far...
