    confused Condensation on Front Lights?

    Hi Guys,

    I've noticed some condensation on the inside of the light casing of my new SRi Vec

    On one side it cleared up and the other side was mostly away after a day or 2 ... however it's now back a bit on one side

    Does anyone know how to get rid of this or what might be causing it?

    Thanks!

    Yeah also check that because i left one patially off and it caused the whole lamp to steam up. I had to take the lamp out and drain off the water

    Surely you would get this no matter what you do in these temps. Hot area meets cold area etc.

    Don't bother with the silca sachets, there is a proper VX fix for this problem.

    Vauxhall do a snorkel kit for the foglights which solves this problem. Mine fogged up big time, but had the snorket kits fitted and it's not been an issue since.

    Is this the same for the headlights?

    I've checked the bulb covers and taken them off and back on again - there are 2 plastic one's and 1 rubber one on each side ... have I missed any?

    It is still happening and even when it clears up it comes back again!!

    Very annoying ... any other ideas?

    You probably have a small amount of water in the bottom of the head light shell , only real cure is to remove the headlight drain it and then dry it out with a hairdryer. i did this with my offside one recently and drained about a quarter of a pint from it.
    now its fine.

    and still loving it
