How can you get the moisture out of your headlights and tail lights?

How Is the Moisture Captured in The Taillights and Headlights of a New Car?

Seeing moisture in the headlights or taillights of a new car is not common for everyone. However, there is a reason behind it.

The moisture gets accumulated on the headlight and taillight parts of the car because before the purchase, the cars are placed in the display room inside the car gallery. There is usually an air-conditioned environment in the car gallery, which keeps the temperature cool and less humid. So, as the cars are placed for display inside the room for a long time, the moisture naturally gets accumulated on the headlights and taillights. However, this is a common phenomenon. But things change when the car comes out of the air-conditioned environment.

When the cars are placed in high humidity areas, all the moisture condenses slowly, and water dewdrops can be seen at the lowermost part of the headlight and taillight area. This happens because the taillights and headlights are not air-tight as they are designed to be an easy bulb replacement in the future.

How to Remove the Moisture from the Headlights and Taillights?

For safe driving at night, headlights and taillights are the ultimate sources of vision for the drivers. Although streetlights are glowing around, they cannot beat the headlights and taillights when it comes to having an intense beam of light at the back and forth of the vehicle. But this light may get affected if the car faces regular moisture in these two parts. This affects the vision during the night and also affects the efficacy of the taillamps and headlamps. Thus, it becomes essential to get rid of the moisture, and it can be done by following a few steps.

In the Headlights
Remove the headlight assembly from the vehicle safely

You cannot remove the moisture from the luxury car headlight without opening it. So, the foremost step to get rid of the moisture from the headlight is to remove the headlight assembly. But before this, you have to disconnect the battery’s cables to ultimately disconnect the battery from the vehicle. Then comes the procedure to remove the headlight assembly. For this, you would need a ratchet and a socket to remove the screws.

Remove any excess moisture or humidity

Once the headlight assembly is removed, the next job is to eliminate the moisture or humidity present in the headlight assembly. To remove the car headlight moisture from the inside, a lint-free cloth must be used. With this cloth, the current humidity needs to be wiped off. But remember, do not put immense pressure on the glass because it may get invisible cracks. This may create a place for more moisture and humidity to accumulate. Make sure that you also wipe the corners and light areas as those places may also contain humidity.

Insert the Silica Gel packets

Using silica gel packs is a perfect solution to absorb moisture in the headlight area. So, once you are done removing the moisture from the headlight assembly, insert silica gel packets in the place. This will remove accumulated water timely. But, ensure that the packs are kept in a position where they do not become a hurdle in the display of light. So, you can paste the packets or use tape to stick them in a static position.

Renew the seals of the headlights

It is not obligatory to follow this step unless you are facing a steady accumulation of moisture. However, if the moisture rate is the same every time you remove or see some moisture after using silica gel packets, you need to renew the headlight’s seals. This can be done with the following step.

·       Remove the headlight’s mask

·       Apply some sealant over the entire frame’s area.

·       Put the headlight’s mask back

·       Compress it to ensure that it has stuck properly

Replace the Headlamp

As you removed the head assembly, it’s now time to replace it back in its position. Put the screws back into their position and use the ratchet ko to properly wrench the screws.

In the Taillights
Remove the taillight from the vehicle

When we talk about the taillights, you need to remove them from their place. For that, you have to disconnect the cables from the batteries. Once it is done, you have to use the ratchet to remove the bolts and screws. When the bolts and screws get fired, just pull the taillight, and it will come out smoothly from its position.

Remove the bulb and allow the water to drain

A Rubber Housing Seal Cap at the back of the taillight assembly is connected with the bulb. It is in the shape of a giant circular screw and needs to be rotated in an anti-clockwise position. This will loosen up the screw, and you can gently pull the screw from its place along with the bulb. Once it is removed, you can quickly drain out the excess water.

Make a hold in the cardboard box, large enough to accommodate the hairdryer nozzle

It is not a cinch task to remove the moisture from the taillight. To dry it out, there must be a presence of a heated atmosphere. To create such an environment, you would need a cardboard box. Then, you would need to fit in the hair dryer’s nozzle, pointing to one of the cardboard’s walls. Make a mark on the part the nozzle is kept and cut that portion. Then fit in the nozzle in that part. However, you need to ensure the nozzle fits in completely. Finally, it is ready for the work to be done.
