so my passenger side headlight is all fogged up and it has been since the first time i washed it and i guess all this rain isnt helping

im assuming its due to water leaking in somewhere but theres no obvious cracks

so i was just wondering is it a fixable problem or am i going to need to buy a whole new headlight :S

the rubber boot on the back is firmly in place and the hole in it surrounds the bulb so its a tight fit?

have this with my au all good and water still gets in

pulled the lights off and drilled a small hole in the bottom to allow water to drain

so far so good!

You may need to re-seal your headlight with butyl rubber glue. You need to use a leat gun to pull the lens off and put the glue in the slot heat it up and reseal it
This is what you are looking for but you can probably get it here in Australia

I ended up cutting the rubber boot a bit to fit around the hid globe, you dont want any moisture getting in otherwise the reflector sort of goes cloudy and then u gotta clean it wiv ur finger, not, not to mention your haverdrive
