Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

Hi Akop.4040 I can't answer your questions about where the water is coming from or where any holes might be. I am using my "O" level GCE Physics knowledge from 1963 to state the basic facts. 1. You cannot have condensation without water vapour being present. 2. Water vapour condenses when it comes ...

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

You cannot have condensation without water being present. When warm water vapour meets a cold surface it condenses. There must be water in some form inside the headlight unit. The heat from the headlight forms water vapour, which then condenses on the cold headlight lens. If there is water inside t...

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

Are you saying it's not possible for the humidity to be increasing inside his headlamps when his lights come on? It clearly is increasing or there wouldn't be condensation. If the condensation only occurs when the lights are on it can only be the heat from the lights causing that humidity. Nope. I ...

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

Just my thoughts on this topic. Heat does not cause condensation. Water vapour condenses on contact with a cold surface. IDEA! Is there water in the lamp unit which is heated into vapour by the heat of the lamp, and then condenses on the cold lens? If that is the case then maybe a drain hole is blo...

Read his point 5, now check the manual photo which I have posted above. It means that the condensation should go away after the headlights are turned on, but in my case it shows up only after they are switched on.

Does it really warrant opening 3 different posts, that I’ve counted on the exact same subject?
Hey Kenny, Sorry I was traveling and posted via tablet. Didn't see yesterday that multiple posts were created for this. I apologize.

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

This sounds very normal. The inside of your headlight is heating up when you turn them on, therefore creating the condensation. If the inside of the unit remained at the same temperature as the outside then there would be no condensation. Somewhat dodgy physics there sorry. Condensation is caused e...
