    Condensation

    I may have found one of the issues with the headlight. It appears to have a lot of condensation inside the actual unit. I am going to Imagine this wouldn't help the brightness of the light. So how do I remove the condensation

    That isn't an easy question to answer on a forum.

    Check there are no cracks or splits in the headlamp. There is a bag of crystals you can put in the headlamp to remove condensation.

    Hmmm, what are these crystals? Might need to see if I can get a hold of some.

    I don't remember the name of these crystals but you can Google crystals for removing condensation, moisture.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    OK thanks.
    What do you do with them? Just put them in the light housing? Or somewhere in the engine bay?

    This is going to take a bit of thinking and research on your part. These crystals work very well but as for the inside of a headlight. Hmmm
    When they are at work and have removed any condensation they solidify into an unpleasant lump which would cause nasty damage.
    Not sure about this method but someone will hopefully enlighten me - and you.
