    Default SRI headlights condensation

    Installed my SRI headlights last weekend, noticed when raining, condensation at the bottom of the lights, the seals seem to be on tight, any hints?

    Have you got the rubber seal thingy on the back of the light? They cover the hole where the bulbs go.

    Take the rubbers off the back & run it with the lights on for a while until it dries out... the moisture may have already been in there...

    it will work - just remember that when they stop working to remove them and then "bake" them in an oven and refit - then they will work again
