Re: Condensation in Headlights after HID install
Thanks for the tip, I will inspect the seals you are refering to. Also, if that looks well, will try with the old bulb and see if that helps....
Last option I guess is just take it to the dealer.

For H11 bulb aplication, they usually don't have dust cap that is covering around the bulbs like previous model since H11 bulb itself have o-ring rubber gasket and it creat seal when bulb is twist into place( projector bulb insert base)
So if bulb is designed properly, seal to the projector's bulb inseet base should be OK.
However,,there is one another seal you need to check.
Most of H11 application headlight design should have rubber boots around projectors bulbinsert base that is covering opening between projector bulb base and housing(similer stuff you see in HB3 high beam reflector bulb insert base rubber boots)
Check to see above two seal is in place proper as well as turn signal bulbs insert just in case.
There can be minor condensation issue at extreme temprature changed but should not be regular issue.
If condensation regularly persist after checking seal AROUND bulb insert base,
I would start checking from by switching bulbs back to original halogen temporary to see if seal problems at bulb itself gasket or some other place.
If that solves problem, bad designed bulbs.
If not, that will be time to suspect other seal( headlgiht itself, air vent tube insert at right angle..etc..)
