Summary
SERVICE NEWS ARTICLE - IS THE LED TAILLIGHT LENS FOGGED UP? IT’S REALLY NOTICEABLE THROUGH THE CLEAR SECTION OF THE LENS IF IT IS. WHAT YOU’RE SEEING IS PROBABLY JUST NORMAL CONDENSATION RESULTING FROM THE TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUN-HEATED AIR INSIDE THE TAILLIGHT AND COOLER AIR OUTSIDE. TO CHECK IF THIS IS THE CASE, START THE ENGINE AND LET IT IDLE FOR 30 MINUTES WITH THE HEADLIGHTS TURNED ON. IF THE CONDENSATION IS GONE AFTER THAT TIME, IT WAS JUST NORMAL CONDENSATION, SO DON’T REPLACE THE TAILLIGHT!
