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.

We purchased a 2005 Lexus RX 330 in New York through ebay on Nov 14. Truck hauler delivered it to central Arkansas Dec 5. Has moisture in passenger side front headlight. Not noticed by previous owner. ...

The headlight is a two piece unit, usually glass in the front with a plastic backing. It's sealed where the two pieces join together but that joint may eventually leak, allowing some water into the housing. You will have to remove the entire headlight housing from the vehicle if you want to reseal it properly, all around. On a lighter note, a little moisture in the headlight housing will not affect anything, if it doesn't burn out your headlight bulb.

2005 Toyota Corolla - both headlight lenses are fogging and will cost $1,000 CAD to replace. Is headlight lense fogging unusual?

You might want to check if the lense is sealed properly. The seal might be cracked and be letting moisture in. Also check where the bulb goes in too...There's usually a rubber seal on that too.

I have moisture in the headlight compartment on my 2005 colorado.

I have the same problem with mine. I havent fixed mine yet but what I would do is remove the grill first, which is required on most newer chevrolets, to remove the headlight. Then remove the light and let it set out in the sun, given that the outdoor temp is warm enough to evaporate all of the moisture. Then around the lip inwhich the clear lens meets the black headlight frame, line it with silicon sealer, and use a razor to trim the excess. Reinstall and should be fine.

Just a guess...its your passenger side headlight that has the moisture, because ive commonly seen that on colorados including mine. Best guess as to why is because that side is near the curb when driving, therefore exposing it to the runoff water from the road.

Condensation always in headlights.

Hi, the moisture in the headlight units is most likely caused due to a failure in one of the rubber seals where the bulbs push through into the headlight unit.

Have a check to see if the bulbs are seated properly, they are normally held in place by metal clips, sorry I'm not familiar with this particular model so can't give specific advice. If the seals are ok, could be that the moisture managed to get in somehow, and now is sealed in the unit.

To get the moisture out, you'll need to remove the bulbs from the headlight unit so that the moisture can evaporate out and then re-fit the bulbs to seal the unit again.

Hope this helps.
