Headlight condensation after winter storm.

Got the olíclassic condensation in the driver side headlight housing. From what Iíve come across on the interwebs, it looks like Iíd have to remove the front bumper. For now, Iím using one of those wireless electric pumps used to inflate floats. Seems like itís working. But I know itís just a band-aid for nowÖ

It's a losing battle but you need to keep it dry before the water pools in the bottom of the enclosure and drips onto the TMS module. Open the top circular access thing and the condensation will evaporate over a day or so. I also use 10g Silica Gel packs that I purchased from Amazon for when it rains and I need to put the access port back on.

I havenít messed with f10 lights yet but most times the gasket on headlight cover goes bad so replacing the entire cover helps
