How do I remove condensation from the headlights of a 1996 GMC Suburban 1500?


The reflectors and the housing usually have a small port or tube device to allow air to enter the housing to stop condensation. If there is a tiny tube or port that could be clogged, or the gasket to the lens is worn and leaking or cracked. You will have to dry out the condensation first before you reseal the headlight lens and housing. This means you will have to take it apart.

Headlight condensation


Try by using a hair drier. Remove head light assembly from vehicle. Remove the bulb for the head light, Use the hair drier through the bulb hole to remove condensation. If water gets in the head light. Drill a small hole on bottom to release the water. Some times you can remove the condensation from the head light if its not bad by using the drier on the outside of the head light, with out removing it. Good-Day!

Saturn sc1 3 bulbs burnt out at one time after I just replaced both headlight bulb


Hi Legalass, Condensation will be caused by water or moisture entering the head light unit. If the lens is cracked or broken or the cover are not correctly fitted that will answer that part of the question. I think for the second part of the question you should take the vehicle and have the voltage regulator output checked. It is possible that the alternator is being allowed to over charge and when it does, it may be blowing the bulbs! Regards John

The head light cover is cracked. I got a new headlight cover and a bulb but how do I install the new headlight cover?


pop the hood and look inside in front of engine obviously, should give ya more of an idea seeing the backs of the screws at least or maybe you have to do it from the inside and will see screws from there, might even be along the front edge where the hood locks down. maybe when the bulbs are out you see some mounting screws there as well. good luck

How do I remove the headlight cover to clean the inside part of the headlight cover. It appears to be fogging making the lights seem dim.


you are talking aftermarket headligth covers? , the head lite itself cant not be taken appart, your best bet is to drill a small hole in the lower part ofthe headlight so moisture can be release, this will help but in the long run you'll need to replace it

I am in the process of buying a jeep Laredo which seems to have condensation inside the headlamp glassis it possible to clean this/replace the glass/or is it best to buy a new pair


Condensation is deemed to happen if ambient temperature is lower than inside the headlamp and humidity inside of headlight is too high.
From a headlight design perspective, you cannot lower ambient temperature. Not much can be done with temp inside headlight either. However, humidity levels on the inside can be reduced. Most designs usually have 2 or 3 air vents to keep humidity below condensation threshold levels.
This might sound complicated, but the phenonomen is exactly the same as windows in a winter home and humdity levels inside. Too much showering, and bathroom window fogs up. Venting will reduce condensation.

You might wonder why headlamps are not designed to be 100% air tight, so that no humidity enters? Well, that would be in an ideal world with no heat losses in bulbs. As the headlights goes through continous warm-cold-warm-cold cycles as you turn light on and off, the air and plastic will expand and retract. This creates pressure changes, which will move a slight amount of air in and out. So instead of forcing the air to be inside, air is moved through controllable passages, so that minimum of road dirt will enter.

If condensation disappears within a week. Moisture can have been sucked up in high pressure wash. This should normally dissapate within a week by itself.

If condensation amount stays constant, then there is crack(s) in headlight that lets in water. This can be siliconed, depending where the crack is, or a replacement headlight should be considered.

Seem to be seal is wear off
already on the front cover
The way to open that
1. There is four screws at the back of
the headlights and unscrew them
2. Pull the headlight and dry it
by wiping or heat of the sun or
anything that can release the fog
3. Buy silicon and seal the headlight
gap with silicon and let it dry for a hour
This will help kept away fog
and condensation for sure
