    MK 5 sxi tail lights misting up

    i have an sxi sport hatch and the rear lights keep misting up inside with condensation, i will take it back to the dealer to be sorted but just wanted to know if anyone else had this problem or if it was more of an isolated incident.

    I'm sure there have been a few cases of this.

    something about the seals got improved as they cause condensation.

    The dealer should change it due to it being a factory problem.

    My 06 Sporthatch rear lights steamed up, and so do my 57 VXR lights mist up, its a common problem on the Astra and I doubt it can be solved. It's even more prominent this time of year with damp nights/early mornings.
    I get it with my Irmscher rear lights too.

    a thought it was something to do with the seal not the actual lights ??
