    Default Condensation on nearside front foglamp on signum

    hi all, pretty much as above! My front nearside foglamp at the front is filled with condensation...done a search on here and found ways to clear the problem, but nothing on how to actually take the foglamp apart to dry it! Any thoughts gratefully received!

    Have a look underneath. Remove the screw cover that gives access to change the bulb. Leave it off for a while to dry it out. SOme put scilica gel packs in there after to help keep the water to a minimum. Tip:- Only fill your washer bgottle up to the 3/4 mark as its normally where the water comes from.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Hi mike no real need to take it apart ,just take cap out from the bottom switch the lights on for a little while until condensation clears.
    That should clear it in the main part then if you have any put one of those little crystal bags that you get with electrical equipment inside light housing this will asorb the moisture and keep it at bay

    Vauxhall now offer a modification for the nearside front foglight. A snorkel type device that fits onto the breather.

    remove large plastic screw from bottom of fog light and let dry for a few hours. Drill small hole in screw and replace, no more mist
