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

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 have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the passenger side head lamp will not come on. The fog lights and driver side head lamp works but the passenger side will not work on bright or on dim, what could this be?


Hi. Since the headlight on the driver side is working then we dont have any problem with the fuse or relay. Check the wiring and the socket of the passenger headlight if it is intact to the bulb. If it is intact, then this could be a headlight problem. Time to replace the passenger headlight.

How do u change a bulb in the fog lights on a


The fog lights on most vehicles sit directly underneath the headlight bulbs. The ballast and wiring work just like the headlights, so changing them takes not much time. The procedure to change the fog light is as follows:-- 1) Open the hood and reach down underneath the headlights to unplug the electrical plug from the fog light assembly. Squeeze the top of the release tab and pull the connection off the bulb's ballast. 2)Turn the fog light counterclockwise to remove it from the fog light housing. 3)Install the new fog light bulb.Then connect electrical plugs properly. 4) Test the fog lights by turning it ON. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How to change fog light bulb


Open the engine hood and you'll see there is a plastic housing holding the head light ans side light to the frame. There are two wing nuts and one wing bolt holding it all together. Remove those and pull the headlight and side light housings out from the frame. You'll be able to access all of the lights now.

Low beam headlight is out, doesn't look like a fuse


Check the Headlight Switch. If your headlights come on automatically check the headlight sensor and its associated relay.

Change fog light bulbs in Mazda 6


Hi, I have a 2003 Mazda 6 which also has the fog light in the headlight assembly. I'm not sure but I would imagine the design is similar to yours. I had the left side blown and it took me roughly 10 minutes to get the bulb out. The cover on the back of the assembly has a push tab in the centre at the top and two locating tabs on the bottom. I had to push down fairly hard on the air filter side of the top tab while at the same time carefully levering the cover off with a flat blade screwdriver. There isn't a lot of room between the headlight and the air filter box but just enough that you can tilt the back cover over a bit and lift it straight up, out from the bottom locating tabs. Pull this cover right out and then you can see inside the back of the headlight assembly. The bulb has a wire retainer clip that you can push in with your fingers to unhook it and hinge it over. You may have to pull a wire terminal off to get at this clip better.You can now just pull the bulb out and remove the approx 5cm wire tail on the bulb out from it's terminal. Should be able to get a replacement bulb just about anywhere. Replacement would be the opposite only be careful not to touch the glass of the bulb with your fingers as this is detrimental to the life of the bulb. Don't forget to put the other wire terminal back on if you had to remove it. As far as the right side goes, I have never replaced the fog light but I have replaced the headlight bulbs which are also behind this cover so it should be possible. It was a while ago for that but if I remember rightly, I had to use a little mirror sometimes on the right headlight-bit of a pain. By the way, unlike me, before you ever replace a headlight bulb, check that the fuse isn't blown first. There is a fuse for low and high beam for both left and right headlights. I don't think that is the case with the fog lights. Hope this helps you or whoever else.
Cheers,Peter.

Change headlight


1) Left side is in front of the Airbox for the aircleaner. 2) Right side is in front of the battery (which HAS to be removed to replace the bulb).
3) Replacing the BULBS for $10 each is all you normally need to do - Unless the lights are Fogging and getting Condensation in them.
The you have to remove the bumper to repace the headlight assemblies. It is a pain. Costs $300-600 at a dealer.

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
