How can you keep moisture out of inside of headlight lens? Both of ours have moisture on inside of lens, Driver side more than passenger. Thanks in advance for :thumbsup:all of your help on this

Are you referring to the 2001 mentioned in your signature? Water is hard to pinpoint. These housings are sealed and there should be a vent on the back that allows heat and cold to expand/contract. Just a little dew is common but a puddle or "aquarium" will necessitate replacing the entire housing. They're on eBay in pairs. Cheap!

As noted above, if you have a lot of water inside the light housing then the seal is broken and the unit should be replaced. If all you have is a little condensation then the vent hole is plugged and not allowing the unit to vent.

Replacement composite headlight housings are available at RockAuto and Ebay for for a fraction of dealer price. New parts pay in the long run with all the trouble of fixing 15 year old ones.
