My stock head lights keep fogging up or collecting condensation on the inside. I have previously sealed them with black RTV silicone. However my left head light keeps collecting condensation. How do I fix this? I don't have money for new lights. I also would like to black out the head lamps from the inside. Any help would be greatful!

Thank you

Chris

May be leaking in around the lamp sockets.

What do the headlamp sockets use to seal around them?
I can't recall if the headlamp sockets have O-rings same as the DRLs...

Make sure blacking out your lights isn't illegal in your area.
It is probably more expensive (or maybe similar) for new headlights after you've painted/blacked out your stock set.

My running lights fog up too......

It's such an easy fix. You are trapping condensation in your light. Just drill a small hole underneath and release it. Don't drill the hole on the side as you will get more water in your headlight ( and it will be visible). Boom, Simple cheap fix. Done. It has worked for me on 2 separate Colorados over 9 years. You don't even have to remove the headlight and no one can see it.

Another tip -- replace bulbs on the least humid days. In a perfect world, the moisture that condenses gets in there when you change the bulb.
If he drills a weep hole I don't think it's gonna make much difference.

Correct. But for those who haven't. I've successfully gotten rid of the humidity in my headlights by removing the bulbs on a cold dry day, let 'air out' for hour, and reinstall. Just a thought.

This may be a stupid request, but if possible can you post a pic of where you drilled the hole? I'd like to put mine in the same spot since you have gone several years without a problem.
