    I notice that drops of water are creating a fog in my headlight housing. Any way of either sealing the housing or drying out the space. The plastic is showing fogging and I've polished with commercial cleaner but the water bugs me.

  16. FYI about headlight wiring deteriorating

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just some info here. We found the wiring inside the headlight fixture deteriorated to the point it was shorting out and blowing fuses. It effected the turn signals also. It did that before the headlights had a problem. If you are having issues with the turn signals blowing fuse etc. Check the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Does anyone have recommendations? He wants "the brightest bulbs available". He had his lenses cleaned by walmart, who apparently does a good job for $30, but that didn't improve things much. I know very little about this area, but curious what you guys think. Is there an LED set he can...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Might be a silly question, but what's the best way to seal the headlight after putting in bulbs? I have the DDM kit and cut a hole that fits the black seal pretty well, but when I put the cap back on it's pretty hard to get the cap all the way on and have the black seal stay in place. I can take...
