    Chuck a few bags of sicla n there , itl airb them out and adsorb the moisture

    The stuff u get in trainers when new and things generally wrapped in cellophane

    I had exact sameprob and still have the backs off , just leave a bag in each light

    It's an old favourite to get rid. Of moisture

    Hope this helps

    Lol I'm glad. Some one else has heard of this

    Yeah over night , just leave them in there they will not do any harm and always. Dry out moisture and stop any future build up

    Whatever you do don't take the crystals out of the bag....they get sticky if there's too much moisture and permanently stick to the inside of the headlights.....bad call on my part
