Gary Lee says:

i used a hairdryer to blow it…should i use cold or hot air??

Gage Decker says:

Will do. If I find a proper way to seal the light it should work.

Mike Mccool says:

Cool idea…. I’m pretty sure the light could handle 15 lbs of vacuum or so but the masking tape wouldn’t. But if you try it, let me know! Later

Gage Decker says:

I was thinking about doing this to my tail light but I’m curious if I could use a vacuum pump (which should cause the water to boil and evaporate) and seal up all of the vacuum leaks on the tail light with masking tape. Do you think this would work or could it cause damage to the tail light?

You might want to check out my “how to repair headlight” video…The majority of the time it is the seal between the lens and rear housing.

hey mike, I have a 2004 Buick rainier and am having a problem with my right side headlight I just recently bought hid (8000k) and I noticed vapor water inside the headlight. I bought a new headlight thinking the old was no good anymore. well the next morning I noticed the same thing happening to the new headlight. can you help me out on to why this is happening? I have gone to the place were I bought the hid and they tell me its not the hid.

Yo Mike, whose track is that?…feeling it.

ataylor985 says:

I think it’s sucking the air out. I did it with a vacuum and it worked. It didn’t remove all the moisture, but it removed a good bit of it.

Aaron Martin Pilkington says:

Hey, Great video! I have condensation in my headlight and are too expensive to replace. Should i remove the headlight, putting it in warm conditiion to dry out then fill the tiny crack it has with tiny sealant.
