Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture
There is condensation in both headlights which reduces the light output. Is there any way to deal with this problem?
Hi, the moisture in the headlight units is most likely caused due to a failure in one of the rubber seals where the bulbs push through into the headlight unit.
Have a check to see if the bulbs are seated properly, they are normally held in place by metal clips, sorry I'm not familiar with this particular model so can't give specific advice. If the seals are ok, could be that the moisture managed to get in somehow, and now is sealed in the unit.
To get the moisture out, you'll need to remove the bulbs from the headlight unit so that the moisture can evaporate out and then re-fit the bulbs to seal the unit again.
Hope this helps.

The headlamps on the the Venture, Montana, Silouette come with NITROGEN in the lense to displace moisture and keep them cooler. When you change the bulbs, you should take out the lense and hold it lense side down to prevent the nitrogen from leaking out. If you lose the nitrogen you could replace it by going to a tire shop and getting them to fill an air tank and doing it yourself. This should take care of the condensation.
