Ya the hole didn't get siliconed and water seems to get all over the passenger side headlight assembly and thus into the lense.blulytes said:who is installing your HID's????
I have installed numerous sets and never gotten that much water in them.
You have to make sure that they are fully sealed and siliconed around the hole.
I've done this before with fog lamps that have gotten water in them. I'll rinse them out with distilled water to try and keep as much of the water spotting down and then put them in the oven for awhile to dry. :thumb:blulytes said:3. Place them on a towel, on a cookie sheet and place them into your oven (if you have a warmer setting, this is the best, open side up)
I will warn you of this... HID bulbs do not like moisture, if they get wet, your lifespan will be drastically cut.
hope this helps, i've been there before! good luck!
YEs the dealer has replaced them after the mod not once but 2 times and I am sure if I had picked the truck up the teh would have told me to silicone them but my wife picked it up and left without talking to anyone.blulytes said:i am not sure about the headlight assembly... but you will need to remove the whole thing to really dry out the assembly.
Any moisture left in there will always leave some condensation.
After you get most of the moisture out... you can always play it safe and place a small desicant pouch inside the headlight just to get rid of some last traces.
did your dealership already replace a set of headlights for you after you modified them??? if so, that is a pretty good dealership.
No they didn't they will not do any aftermarket installs of this type specifically for this reason. On a side note I am getting a new windshield installed as there is an issue with the coating either on the windshield or in the windshield where they have some imperfection in it so they are replacing it.blulytes said:did the dealership do the install???
if so, this is their problem, not yours. get new headlights!
LOL funny you say that the mechanic that lived a few doors down from us said the same thing he did it with his older Grand Prix and he has no problems now and no fogging wither LOL.Web Raven said:If it was an older car, I'd say "drill a small hole in the bottom of the headlight." LOL I've actually done that on my old '87 Ford Taurus years & years ago.
Sounds like you've gotten plenty of great advice here though, so mine was more of a side-comment on the situation. I hope you're able to get it fixed without too much trouble.
