You have to replace the assembly, the plactic outside heats and expands differently from the rear of the unit...Some guys have resealed them, but best to replace them. The cost in unfriendly, but the switch out is ususally very easy.

Lowbeam headlights bulbs went out on my 2004 ford expedition


It's most likely shorting out because of a water issue caused by a crack or something abnormal in the headlight case. Have the fuses been blown at all? If so, then there could be a short to ground causing them to blow fast. Gotta do some digging on your end to figure out if there are bad wires or cracks letting moisture in

Moisture in 2001 sc-1 headlight


Did you recently change a bulb or have a crack in the headlamp?
headlights are design so they shouldn't acumulate moisture, however if replace the bulb and not seal it corectly we can get a water inside. First you should inspect your light for any damage (small cracks, tiny holes ect.), 2nd check your bulb position in the headlight, should be installed firm in the socket (oring, seal from must be in good condition, no cracks, flexible, if bulb is very old seal can get damage, so just replace a bulb). In order to remove moisture you will have to remove the bulb anyway and with the hair dryier heat the lens till you get water out of it, be carefull do not heat to high and just in one spot becuse you can damge headlight. it will take a while to do this at this time of the year if you live in late fall, winter afected region, but if the problems discribed above exist your moisture will come back(you may have to replace the headlight). Good luck

My wifes 92 883 keeps blowing headlights. First the low beam then the hi-beam. Is it the headlight relay shooting too many amps to the light?


Check the headlight lens for moisture in them, that blows bulbs. Do you touch the bulbs with your fingers when installing them? Don't do that, that blows bulbs. And no to many amps is not possible, but to many volts,is poss, have the charging system tested by a local Autozone or O'reilly auto parts, its is free, it could be to much voltage due to a alternator issue or wiring problems. Please rate my help for fixya..

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.

There are a couple of thing that cause the bulbs to fail, on e and very common is to touch the glass part of them, the oils in the skin will cause the glass to shatter, the other and most common is moisture getting into the headlight, this is easy to detect, the inside of the headlight lens will be fogged out or you will see water inside, ever had water touch hot glass? it shatters, this is caused by leaks in the electric weld seam, the only fiz is to replace the headlight lens assemblies. You can buy these in the after market fairly cheap from Partstrain.com, I have used there parts and they are very good quality.

Headlight blows on a regular basis - once evrey 200 miles or so. Have tried using different supplier but makes no difference


do you have dew or water settlement inside the headlight casing? SOunds like you my have a leaky assembly. if the assembly is not air tight it will cause the headlights to do this.

Headlight


This is always caused by moisture getting into the headlight lens assembly, the surface of the bulb is about 500 degree's, if any moisture even a tiny bit gets on the bulb is cracks the glass and the filament burns out, the leak will be in the electro-static seal weld of the lens edge and is a common concern on all models of cars that use a plastic lens and separate bulb setup. Solution replace the headlight lens, they are cheap and can be bought from partstrain.com, about $60.00
