Moisture inside of headlights Is there any way to fix this or?

Recommended Posts

Yes you will need to replace it, it means there is a crack in it somewhere. hsolist is where I would start, I have seen them there for $20 with a new bulb in them.

As a temporary fix, I have had good luck drilling a small hole as a drain at the bottom corner of housing. This seems to help the water drain.

If you want to replace do as 4.W.E. said or try Certifit in North St. Paul. They are very cheap and should have them in stock.

We get most of our mirrors and headlamp assemblies from keystone. To date I have been very happy with the fit and quality of there products.

There used to be places called junk yards where you went and got what you needed. Don't they exist any more? I guess I'm old and spoiled - I live near Hugo.

The problem with junk yards they will charge about 50% of dealer list, which is about $80 each, or you can buy after market for $20-$40 each new!

Ya, I got a new heater power mirror a while back from Certifit for about $34.00. Johns wanted $50 for used and wated $70.00 for an after market one, which (I think it was Valv who said it) is the same after mirror from Certifit. Just have to drive another 10 minutes to the east right to Certifit. crazy

I am all for a company making money, but I all that and a bag of chips for me saving money and make just that much more grin

Certifit is located in Vadnais Heights, right off of 35E just up from 694. Go to google and type in certifit. It will be the first one on the list. Go to "contact us" at the bottom and then click on the state of MN.

Keystone is in Mpls. Do the same search as above, but use "keystone-auto". They are down off of Marshall I think.

Good luck

Certifit has my business since a long time ago.

New headlights and they also have a bulb already in it.

Some people think it's different stuff then OEM, I can only say I was at a Chevy dealer once and they sold a mirror to a guy in same Certifit has. Dealer price $ 185.00, Certifit $ 35.00 shocked

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
