I know this has probably been talked about... But I searched and couldn't find it so sorry if this is a repeat post. But I was washing my car the other day. And I was looking at the passenger side head light and there was fog and mositure on the inside. I don't know if this means the head light cover is defective. I just don't know how to fix it so the mositure doesn't get in there. Should I take it to a dealer? Thanks

Did you check to see if the caps that covers your light bulbs are closed tightly?

yeah check the cap behind the low beam, and theres a tab to remove a back section behind where the fog and parking lights are, make sure that hasnt come loose as well..

could also be a bad seal, but from what i understand they are stuck pretty tight (people had to literally bake them in the over for a few mins to melt the adhesive in order to get the lense apart to paint the housings)

Look in the newbe section, as a poster had the same problem just after she bought her car. I responded to that post too, as my wagon has the same problem. I&#39;ve reported it but haven&#39;t brought the car in to get a new housing ordered.
Put the car in direct sunlight and you&#39;ll see the fog happen real quick. All my backings were on very well and the driver&#39;s side housing was just fine. My guess is just a bad seal.

I had this happen once. It stuck around for a week and bugged the hell outta me.

Then I got sick of it, so I removed the bumper and headlight. removed the dust caps and stuck it in front of a powerful fan for about an hour with the fan blowing into the headlight back. This removed all the moisture. Afterwards, I proceeded to put white caulk/sealent around the clear lenses and black housings.

This was about 3 months ago and I haven&#39;t had any moisture problems since then....

I hade this problem in my 2003 Ford Focus. When I traded it in for my mazda 6, I noticed that the new 6 also had the problem in both head lights. Took it into the shop the next day and am having them both replaced under warrenty.
