condensation!!




I've recently put a crystal light pack on the front of my wrx but one of the front indicators keeps misting up from the inside. Anyone know how to remedy this?

Re: condensation!!

They mustn't be sealing right mate. Wonder would the seals off your original lights fit them?

Re: condensation!!

if u cant repair the seal,u can dry the condensation up with a hair dryer,just take bulb out ,and let the heat of hairdryer do its stuff.

Re: condensation!!

the seal is defiantly not broken as its brand new, is it because its not pressing flush against the body work that condensation builds up or just not getting air flow through the unit?

Re: condensation!!

in order for condensation to build up in a air tight space ,there has to be a leak from somewere,maybe were the bulb goes in,(the bulb seal)but there has def got to be a leak for condesation to get it ,in first place,
as when u put bulp in,the heat of the bulb shud burn the condensation up,and if it isnt ,there is a air leak,try the bulb seal.
