I have a foggy right headlight, it tends to only get foggy in heavy rain. Has anybody else had this? I changed my light bulbs about a month ago and i'm positive i put everything back together again.

the fog will go away after a day or so and if i run my headlights - which i tend to do.

However, does anybody know of any tips to prevent this from happening.

I might try putting Vasalene around the rubber of the rear plastic cap that lets u get to the bulbs.

Ideas welcome!

this is not a warranty item for i have had this problem. it does not occur often but it does occur to both lights. I called the dealership and they said that the headlight is an open/ventilated headlight. He said they are supposed to do that and to get rid of the condensation the only thing you can do is run the lights. he said it is quite normal. Let me knwo if anyone has heard anything else on this subject.
