Hi all...Have condensation on Driver side front light after using my baby....Car has never been in the rain and is garage kept...I thought maybe there was some humidity in the garage but condensation does not happen when there..
I's only when I return home from being out on the road that I notice it
It does dissipate after a period of time and it the light looks fine when sitting in garage
Attached some photos from different angles..
Hope someone has some insight on this ...
As always ..thanks in advance for the help..

that usually occurs with the lights made in 06. The lens on them get loose around the gray seal and let moisture in. it could also be one of the rubber nipple seals on the back of the light is stuck or missing. for moisture to get in there has to be a broken seal at some point.

nothing I know of to repair. Just check the seal on the outer lens and make sure it is not loose on the gray support frame. You can tap it around the edge lightly and see if it sounds solid and look to see if the color of the gray reinforcement looks consistent all the way around . especially at the lower corner. Other than that it would require removing the headlight to check the housing on the back side
