Drill two holes on the bottom corners of the head light. May wife has a Montana and had the same problem and most Montana owners do the same thing, rather then replace the headlight unit. Drilled it 5 years ago and never had a problem ever since. Just make sure it's not to big or small of w whole, the size I have is just about the size of a pen and make sure it's at the bottom of the headlight. Good luck and hope this helps.

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.

Moisture keeps collecting inside my 2008 Subaru Tribeca front headlight. Dealership resealed twice without sucess. They finally replaced the headlight with a new one, and the problem still persists. ...


Try taking off the headlights and remove the bulbs. When you remove the bulbs, there is a gasket. If there is moisture, you will notice that the outside and inside of the gasket is wet. Use a hair dryer and silicone sealant to seal the gasket and the moisture problem shall go away.

Hi, the headlights are letting in moisture best thing to do if you can get to the rear of the lights dry them off as best you can and try and find where tyhe moisture is coming in, then get a hair dryer and dry them out. leaving the headlights on will dry them out aswell but will take a little longer. they will keep doing this unless you find where the moisture is coming in.

Hope this helps

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.

Headlights fogged


I have a Montana and the headlight on these vans are always fogging up inside and collect water from condensation. Most of us Montana owner's drill two 3/8 hole on the side of the headlight to allow air to circulate. That fixed the problem and no more fog or water. When you drill the hole find a spot like close to the bottom corner and look to see if the spot is clean, which would indicate that dirt and water from the rain don't collect there.
Good luck and hope this helps.

4Runner headlight has moisture inside. Light works fine


yes. it should be a fairly easy job, just be careful when removing the glass, and make sure you get your headlight re-alligned when it is done, as it will fail its mot if not done.

hope that helps.
