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

12 posts in this topic

Do I have to replace them completely and if so where is a good place to buy some for a 98 ford contour?

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

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
