I would check with your dealership because that might be covered under warranty. (Before investing any money in repairs)
Pat, very interesting...have you had severe changes in temp like we've had up here? I'm curious as to why so many people are getting it and yet others aren't....Flip, can you help out?Mike, Make that three times - my right headlight if full of moisture right now, and the low beam headlight has gone out.
I'm interested to know why some are getting moisture and others aren't as well...seems interesting....I don't have any moisture buildup (knock on wood) and we've had extreme (70 degrees in the afternoon to 30 degrees in the same night) weather changes multiple times the fast few weeks here....are your lights perhaps not sealed properly and open/cracked?Flipside is correct, mine is a grey a import and Lexus here most likely will not cover it. I asked the service advisor and his explanation was... These HIDs have vents somewhere in the assembly to dissipate heat. Couple that with the change in temp once you turn on the lights... creates moisture. Ngeea... sounds ho hum to me. I just can't imagine Lexus (Japan) thinking in those terms when they designed these lights. He also said that with the lights on for a few minutes, the moisture will disappear. Such has not been the case so far. I don't know if it's because the car is washed quite often.
Bedsides, your temp changes there are more extreme especially now that it's winter, but how come none of you guys have the same problem?
Do they have an explanation as to why this is happening?
Glad to hear they are taking care of it Pat and thanks for keeping us updated. Were you able to ask about what causes such moisture to occur/buildup?Took my car to Sterling McCall Lexus here in Houston (where I bought it) and they ordered me a new headlight assembly. Didn't say anything about cost so I assume that it will be covered under warantee. This is the first problem I have had with my ISF in almost 2 years and 42,000 miles.
Are you going to order new headlights to get rid of the moisture or wait it out to see what happens?I will have to check if it is properly sealed. I have not touched anything since I bought it and certainly this car has not been in an accident. My right side used to be fine but I noticed recently that some moisture build up is also starting to occur. Moisture emanates from the extreme outer corner. Bummer.
Since we're on the subject of headlamps et al, do yours shake/vibrate when driving on rough roads? Mine do. It probably has something to do with the self adjusting mechanism.
