I have the same problem with mine. I havent fixed mine yet but what I would do is remove the grill first, which is required on most newer chevrolets, to remove the headlight. Then remove the light and let it set out in the sun, given that the outdoor temp is warm enough to evaporate all of the moisture. Then around the lip inwhich the clear lens meets the black headlight frame, line it with silicon sealer, and use a razor to trim the excess. Reinstall and should be fine.

Just a guess...its your passenger side headlight that has the moisture, because ive commonly seen that on colorados including mine. Best guess as to why is because that side is near the curb when driving, therefore exposing it to the runoff water from the road.

Usually only requires a couple screws to be taken out, you could invest in a Chilton's manual for your vehicle and it would describe in detail how to change/ replace headlamps and assemblies. you can purchase one from any auto parts store. Here is a link for a replacement headlamp assembly passenger side.

How do I remove the headlight cover from 2005 crossfire to clean the precipitation


they are sealed units and not meant to be taken apart, if there is moisture inside it means there is a crack or hole somewhere allowing it in, look for anywhere moisture can get in and seal it, the moisture that is there now will dry up over time.

I have moisture on the inside of the headlight lens. How can I get rid of it without buying a whole new headlight lens assembly?


Just a suggestion, remove the light assembly, remove one bulb, blow air into the unit, see where the air leaks out, seal it with Goop. Quick and easy.

you have to remove the bulbs from inside of the hood in the engine compartment. in some cars you have to remove some "pins' and remove the entire headlight assembly.. You then remove the holder where the lightbulb is located and replace the bulb.
