Hey everyone, Iv got abit of a problem iv also been told its a common problem with bmws but not sure as this is my first beemer. My passengers side headlight has got aload of mist in it but my side is crystal clear :confused So far iv taken the passengers side headlight out, popped it in the oven on a low heat and removed the rubber seal with a stanley knife then put a fresh seal of waterproof silicone around it and popped um back in the car, It seemed to stay clear for about 2 days then slowly started misting up again. How can i prevent this or is it a case of buying a new headlamp?
