    I had it quite bad in my front O/S too all winter last year, but cleared up for summer and MOT.

    Won't fail MOT. To fix there is a new set of seals for the lights available from vauxhall (parts in MK5 section - http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...ad.php?t=96551).

    Or you can take both lights off the car, dry them out in house and then put back on in dry whether and reseat bulb holder tightly. This should also sort problem.

    Get handy with a hairdryer on the outsides of the lights before the MOT.

    If the car has warranty, get VX to sort it.
