Foggy Headlight

I purchased a set of smoked headlights two years ago from American Muscle and now the light on the passenger side is fogging up. How do I go about fixing this, as it looks like total crap!

You gotta dry it out. Get a hairdryer, and blow it dry. Then get your flat iron and... Just kidding.

But seriously, pull your bulb, use a hairdryer to dry out the lens from the inside and check the seal on your bulbs headlights and signal. They may need to be replaced. If the doesn't work, you'll need to reseal the lens itself. Tape the clear lens up with blue painters tape and put it in the oven at 150* for about 5 minutes to soften the adhesive then you could add more adhesive around the lens and clamp together until it cools.

Sounds like the seal between the lens and housing broke, I would let the lens clear up then use clear silicone caulk to reseal the lens

I resealed the lens and put a new seal on the back where the headlight bulb goes in. I'll see how it does, crossing my fingers that it sealed it off. Thanks guys!

I've heard of guys drilling a small hole int the bottom where it isn't seen to help the moisture drain don't want it to come to that but if you still have the problem and the company won't except a return.
