Removing Condensation from Front Headlights

Contributed by: UCrewX5

How to remove condensation from front


Many BMW X5 owners have experienced condensation in their front
headlights at one time or another. If the vehicle is still under
warranty then you can request that your dealer replace it at no charge.
If, however, your X5 is out of warranty then here is a trick that worked
well for me.

First, remove the high beam socket from the headlight housing by twisting
the socket and pulling it straight out. Use care not to touch the
bulb, as the oils from your fingers could cause the bulb to fail
prematurely. Next, place a wet/dry vacuum hose into the socket and
form a tight a seal as possible. Allow the vacuum to run for as long
as it takes to suck the moisture from the headlight housing. Be patient
and let it run. I let it
run for several hours and it did an excellent job of removing all of the
moisture. Once all of the moisture is gone, simply reinsert the high
beam light socket and you are all set.

Others have tried using a blow dryer to eliminate the condensation, but I
found that the method described above worked very well for me.
