    Driver side headlight assembly , fog ?

    Good day ,

    Anyone ever have issues with fogging inside the driver side headlight assembly ?
    I know itís normal considering the time of year , however itís pretty persistent on the drive side and stays for most of the day while the passenger appears fine . I tried to check for the vents which are normally located in the rear of the assembly to check if they were clogged but couldnít find any . I checked the rubbed gasket for the headlight bulb no cracks , and Iím getting tired of using a blow dryer to remove the condensation lol .

    Anyone have any thoughts on this or have it happen to them .

    Take bulb sockets out spray silicon grease on the gasket wait few minutes spray again and tighten back if that wont help change both gaskets with new ones. If theee are no cracks and seams are not separated then the only place for humidity to get in is either through gaskets or through harness gaskets in that case i would change the socket with new one.
