Rear light condensation
« on: May 19, 2015, 09:18:39 am »
From new my car has always suffered from having condensation in the rear lights. Its not even a year old and they have both been replaced, including the seals.

It doesn't really bother me but on some sunny days, it can get quite bad. My only real concern is, will it have any lasting damaging effect?! Is this a common problem for the Evos?

    I clear mine with the wife's hairdryer it only takes a couple of mins blowing it on the glass from the outside, done this on loads of cars over the years.

    I've had mine replaced too and they have started again already, cars only 16 months old. Would be good if there was a permanent fix but i wouldn't know what it is. Maybe different seals or something but I'm not sure.

    maybe someone else knows?

    Sorry guys I know this is an old topic but I popped into Vospers Plymouth to ask about this... The guy said there is nothing they can do as it was on all Evos where the lights weren't sealed properly. So basically I had an Evo in 2010 where it happened and now I've got a 2012 Evo Abarth with the same issue so for 2 years they never bothered dealing the lights??? Can this be right!

    I had the same issue on my 1 year old Evo....changed both lights under quarantine....if it happens again i'll drill a small hole at the back of the lights so they can 'breath'. :P
