headlight fogging up

i kinda knew that this would happen but hoping it wouldnt


washed the car and took it around the block real quick... came back left side headlight was fogging up... i do have new headlights


does anyone know how to stop it!? i contacted the seller i got them from just waiting on reply to see what happens next... im also curious, shoud i use sealant around it, or like does the inside have to "breathe" so it doesnt get too hot inside


thank you all

Same problem with both, some say drill tiny drain hole in the lowest point others say you have to crack it open dry it and re-seal it.. Good luck with that.

All modern plastic headlamp housings are not sealed & cannot be sealed. I've written about this topic several times if you search. Running with the DRL's on will dry them out pretty fast. With headlamps on even faster.

Garage
Washed mine today right after installing the new lights and they fogged up right away, but within an hiur of washing it they cleared right up. According to the packaging that came with them it's pretty common.
