is there a solution to this or is it new units ?
Take them out and dry them fully, hair dryer or airing cupboard and then put a silica gel sachet in there to absorb any moisture formed?
If it's the rears you are talking about, i put a strip of insulation tape over the part where the little rubber flap piece meets the top of the light cluster, the problem seems to be water runs down the tailgate shut and straight into the rear lights, as said the tape has cured mine.
We have two Avants and dont get this problem and assume that the lights are sealed properly .The design seems to intend the water to drain straight down rather than over the bumper and boot sill for some reason which isnt clear but it might be if we used the tape idea
FORGOT TO ADD, THEY WHERE PERFECT UNTILL I FITTED HID KITS !
ITS ONLY ONE MIND!!! YOU MAY BE ABLE TO SEE FROM THIS PIC
ITS THE RIGHT HAND ONE !
Im sure I read somewhwere there is s small air vent with a sliding cover on the headlight body, perhaps the adjustment of the vent will make a difference ?
I have halogens at the moment which get hot and helps clear the fogging, Xenons are different I believe.
