The dealer told me that it isnt a problem, as when the air is dry or the lights are turned on, the warmth dries up any condensation. It mentions this in the handbook. Obviously the unit itself isnt sealed, otherwise we wouldnt be able to change the bulbs.
hang on, the units must be sealed to an extent, otherwise each time you switch on your lights you light up the engine bay which leads to less light out front.
so where does the moisture escape to when you switch them on? it doesnt/cant.
we have the same prob with our 16vs in that the fogs mist up and never clear. i took mine out and put them on the radiator for a week, siliconed around the seam and there fine. (then i used the holes for cold air feeds but there we go)
They are not sealed - the bulbs (main beam and sidelights) just clip in like any old headlamp. The HID dip beams are different but thats got nothing to do with the condensation. The misting up happens on our Megane too - its normal. The foglamps are a different matter. Condensation in those is a problem.
BTW did anyone find any blue H11 bulbs for the foglamps yet?
