    IMG_1674.jpg have to remove headlight cause I didn’t use enough silicone for after market lights , was thinking about filling with water and testing for leaks . Will this damage the housing ?

    Don’t fill your head lights up with water. If there is water in them already see where it dumps out, let them dry and seal them up.

    It’s just minor condensation really no puddles , just bought them 3 days ago . I’ll just seal the light all the way around again lol , I didn’t let them properly cure and had an issue when I grabbed flowable silicone so after using it I realized most of it was flowing to either side I did go buy some normal sili and re did the light but at that time was just pissed by the amount of time I had in it and the big ass storm clouds over head so I probably rushed it , appreciate the help , and glad to be here

    Was that OEM or did you do a mod on it?

    Why not take it to the dealer to get it replaced?
