Lamp Assembly Condensation
Exterior lamps have vents to accommodate normal changes in pressure. Condensation can be a natural occurrence of this design. When moist air enters the lamp assembly through the vents, there is a possibility that condensation can occur in cold temperatures. When normal condensation occurs, a thin film of mist can form on the interior of the lens. The mist eventually clears and exits through the vents during normal operation. Clearing time may take as long as 48 hours under dry weather conditions.
Examples of acceptable condensation are:
  • Thin mist without streaks, drip marks or droplets.
  • Fine mist that covers less than 50% of the lens.
Examples of unacceptable moisture are:
  • Water puddle inside the lamp.
  • Large water droplets, drip marks or streaks on the interior of the lens.
If any of the above conditions of unacceptable moisture are present, contact an authorized.
