Fogging inside headlights

Yesterday afternoon after getting home from picking up the kids from school I noticed that both my headlights appeared to be fogged up in the corners. It is definately on the inside as I couldn't wipe it off...lol

It was raining most of the day but the car was only out in the rain whilst driving. Parked it was undercover.

Anyone else seen this with their headlights?

See below.

Re: Fogging inside headlights

Looks like you have moisture inside the lens. New Headlight for you.

Re: Fogging inside headlights

I checked them both tonight when I got home from work (the car wasn't driven today and stayed inside my garage) and they are all clear again. Will keep an eye on them and get it sorted at the 20K service.

They are vented headlamps....completely normal when new. Couple heat cycles and theyll be fine. Mine did thst after its first wash.

But it's over 8 months old now.........and it has been wet plenty of times before and hasn't shown up.

Tomorrow I'll be out most of the afternoon and the car will be outside all that time so I'll check it again tomorrow when I get home.

Re: Fogging inside headlights

I have the same problem fogging up in the corners too, looks like it's common for WK2JGC. Only happens when headlights are on and raining. (I believe the vent holes are to small)
