Water inside 05 dutchstar headlamp

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to remove moisture from inside the headlamp or is there an auto replacement for that unit?  

Saw a formum several years ago where this subject was discussed on a different year coach.

Dutch,

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

Do you have a replaceable bulb accessible from the back of the headlight assembly?  If so, remove the bulb and use a hair dryer to dry out the assembly. Do not overheat the plastic doing this.

More likely the headlamp will have a TYC number on it and with that you can get a replacement.

Removing the water is the end problem, preventing water from entering is the root problem. I have heard of drilling a 1/16" hole in the lowest point of the headlamp reflector assy, draining the water, removing the bulb, and allowing it to dry for a few days (covered from any water source) then using sealant to seal the hole.

I've never attempted that, as I've never had the problem.
