    Condensation on rear light

    I got an Astra H sxi and got condensation building up in my rear light. i was wondering how to get rid of it as vauxhall are telling me that i have to buy a whole new light and the problem might keep on happening.

    any feedback would be appreciated!

    yeah it is a common problem on the vauxhalls, i have had 3 replaced under the warranty and the car is only 1yr and 6m old, only notice it more around cold weater. They have no solution, far as i see it, it is a defect from the manufacture, so i dunno where u stand with Trading standards.

    Yup mine too, although they've cleared up now and only happened when we had the really cold weather.

    I read that they do this after the bulbs have been replaced - you are supposed to fit a new gasket every time and I think if you look in the handbook it says it will do it and to put your lights on and it will go!
