    Hiy everyone,

    Has anyone else had condensation in their headlight when it gets very cold. I've had it before but then it cleared up. Until again today. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I've spoken to Audi and they told me it is a problem with TT's and A4 ( B6's ) due to them having the polycarbonate lenses.

    What do you think?? Truth or a way of trying to get out of it.

    Be lucky.

    Goddam it! This question has been asked tens of times over the past few months! Does nobody use the bloody search engine /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Maybe I should change the site name to Condensation in headlights is normal due to their open vents at the back.net??

    Cheers! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Just in case there's still any doubt :
    Audi Service Bulletin
    Basically it says to turn the headlights on and don't replace anything.

    Nope I'm having an excellent day thanks (although I have 90mph winds ratting the slates on my roof, which makes me worried!)

    You can note my good humour by use of /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif and /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Well at least you wont get flooded but then your more exposed to the wind so its six of one and half a dozen of the other! Must be quite dangerous on the roads up there, any fallen trees on roads or the likes with those storms?

    PS I know you were annoyed earlier thats why i asked /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    No body said that doing it once would cure it! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    The idea is you do it each time you have the condensation build up. I never had it too bad in my TT, perhaps once or twice that I noticed.

    I've never noticed in with the S4. Perhaps it's because the car is always garaged overnight.
