    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default Demisted front foglamp

    Yes, on the passenger side. It was really bugging me. It always cleared but after driving it was always coming back. Took the advice I read on here removed the cap underneath, drilled a small hole in it, replaced it and hey presto no more misting! l am reticent to try anything suggested on here cos I don't really know what I'm doing and I'm as cack-handed as they come. But if your front foglamps are misting up give it a try. If I can do it anyone can.

    I also discovered that some fool at the dealers, presumably when the original passenger side foglamp was changed under warranty (2 years ago!) had not re-run the wiring to the foglamp behind the front bumper supports but had left it hanging in a loop behind the outer corner of the front bumper/skirt. So I sorted that too.

    I've had exactly the same problem since new. The dealer did change them under warranty (along with the headlights), but the passenger side one still mists up to this day. Cheers for the info... I'll try it on the weekend.

    Glad you got it sorted, but there is a proper Vauxhall field remedy for this, you can get a snorkel breathing kit for the foglights. Mine has been done and it has worked well.

    I ended up blocking the small hole I drilled after going though some puddles and the fog light ended up with dirty water inside it. Had to remove to wash it all out.

    I have since fitted a small bag of desiccant in the bottom of the fog light. We have plenty of it kicking around at work. If you're not sure what I'm on about, its those little pouches you get lying in the bottom of a shoe box, or in the boxes of some electrical items. Basically it's an moisture absorber.
