Passenger side headlight has visible moisture in it. what could the problem be?


The reson why there is a moisture inside your headlight is because the rubber that seals your headlight bulb at the back of your headlight is already worn out, so the heat coming from your engine will add to it causing the moisture to built in inside your headlights. In addition, the cold temperature outside the headlights will create a moisture inside your headlights.

Hi, I have a 2006 Hyundai Tucson. I love my Tucson except for one thing, it keeps blowing headlights. I have never had this issue with any other vehicle. I see that it seems to be a common issue with...


Have your voltage checked. This is usually done with an alternator test at a local autoparts store. If that checks out look closely at the mounts for the headlight and make sure its not loose. Vibration can cause bulbs to blow. Make sure there is no moisture in the lens. Water will cause it to blow.. Lastly when you replace the bulb do not touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to blow early.

How do you fix a 2008 HYUNDAI SONATA front head light?


The halogen headlight is basically a bulb that is replaced from behind the headlight assembly inside the hood. Hyundai has a cover that keeps moisture and debris out. To remove it, simply twist the cover counter clockwise. Once removed, you should be a locking "bracket" that will resemble a small wire handle. This locks the bulb into place. The handle can be released by "squeezing" it together (on some models, the handle is kept in place by a notch) and pulling up. Once released, you will be able to remove the plug and old halogen bulb.
Once the bulb is replaced, reverse the instructions to re-assemble. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya! Greg

Foggy headlight assembley


If the fog is on the outside, it is damage from dirt and rocks from the road. You can try sanding and buffing them (they sell kits for this purpose), but it's not that easy.
If the fog is on the inside, it may be that moisture has gotten into the assembly through a crack or loose seam. Remove the protective backing from the assembly and let the water evaporate. Find the crack or loose seam and seal it with clear caulk of some kind.
The only other choice is to replace the assembly.
Best wishes!

1999 ford taurus with moisture in the headlights


Most headlights lens are sealed up to prevent this problem. A broken seal or a crack somewhere opened up to let in moisture.
You can drill a small hole on the lowest part of the plastic headlight housing to let the water drain out. Or, replace the plastic headlight assembly with a new sealed one.The plastic headlights turn yellow and cloud up over time (not because of moisture inside, because it's plastic getting ruined by the weather and the sun). This problem reduces headlights from putting more light on the road.
The only thing you can do with moisture inside the headlights is to drain out the water that builds up. The seals on the headlights are bad right now and are going to keep letting moisture in. I would replace the both headlight assemblies for new sealed, clear ones.

Dont replace it.. Take a drill and a very small bit and make 3 holes at the very Bottom of the lense.. This will allow moisture to escape. Make sure to burn the head-lites at least 30 mins after ya do this to clear any excess water/moisture out.. Warning! Dont do this if the lense is made of glass.. do it on Plastic only.. Thanx

I had moistured on my 2004 sienna headlight, How can i removed the moistured?


I fixed this problem on my 2004 Sienna. The moisture seems to come in from the top of the headlamp assembly. I generously applied Permatex Super Clear VINYL SEALANT to the seam at the top of the assembly after drying out the moisture by remvoing the bulbs. There are vent at the bottom of the assembly which should be open; there's a liitle foam plug that let's air in so the assembly is not intended to be airtight. There has been no moisture problem for about a year.
