Moisture in Headlight

Help!

I have a slight crack on the top of the left-hand-side headlight and yesterday i decided to wash my car and accidentally sprayed a few drops of water inside my headlight. I ignored it completely and last night however it decide to fog up! Does anyone know how to totally remove the moisture inside the headlight without wiping it as the crack is too small to put a cloth inside? Many help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Unscrew/pull off the caps (the rear of the lights) for the lights you don’t have to take the bulb out (unless their is a seal or something) take it for a drive the air and heat will get it all out for ya. Or next time you’re going for a drive take the rear covers off the headlight assembly. Cheers Rob

THanks for the help guys. I have tried hairdryer and it evaporated but when night comes it came back again :)

I think the whole frontlight assemble has 2 glasses. One is the front glass, and the other is where you insert the lightblub. The moisture is where the front glass is not in the lightblub assemble section.

Fun quotes taken out of context (Instalment#1):

*points to the above*

LMFAO

Sorry it had to be done bro.

Sorry about my dad and the light man, I went to Awun the other day and they are open so swing around on one of your many days off.

Hey siksII i was wondering at what temperature exactly did you put the oven on and for how long did you leave the light in the oven for.  might sounds silly but did you preheat the oven(just that i don't want light to melt altogether =)

Hey, i myself did not do it, a friend did on his 300zx. the front and rear are bonded in the same way, with a sort of glue.

he preheated the oven to medium heat, or around 180 degrees, but i am not sure how long he left it. probably just took it out after a few mins to see if it was ready :( sort of like baking a cake lol

He did it because he was planning on spray painting a part of the headlight silver, which he did, it looks excellent now :)

when you lights possilbly fog up for different reasons...pull/take the bulb out :) so you let some air in and out works better on a warmer day to get all the mist fog out NP then after its gone inspect and see if thier are any seals that a damaged etc to make sure it dosent happen again.

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
