    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...

    I know there are probably a million threads on this thing, but here's mine. :) I removed the driver's seat and pulled up the carpet (what a PITA), and found a TON of moisture/condensation under it. It smells all musty. That explains why the windows fog up so easily. I removed the CCM and gee...

    Is there a anyway to remove water stains and fogging on the inside If headlights without taking them apart or off of the car? Mine are like that from Moisture getting in. I need to re-seal the HID grommet To the dust caps and I'm thinking of getting new high beam covers as well.

    So this is a curious issue. Seems that my "new to me" 2004 passat 1.8 wagon has an excess of humidity on the interior of the windows. Currently is well below freezing and when I got into the car this morning, there was a scrappable layer of frost on the interior of the windshield. On warmer...

    I some how got some water in my tail light lens on a B5.5. May have been during cleaning (had the bulb holder out for a while when cleaning the grime near the hinge). Not really sure. Don't see any obvious cracks. Tried to put an air nozzle in the holes where the bulbs go to blow it out (or...

    It appears that I have been gone for a while and the search is much different. I didn't find much so forgive me if this has been discussed.... I suddenly have condensation inside my driver-side tail light housing of my 2004 wagon. I had the same issue many years ago with the passenger-side...

    So when I replaced my air filter today on my 2001.5 1.8T passat I decided to clean the MAF as well. The car has had a P0171 error code for a while , I replaced a bunch of vacuum hoses already and thought the MAF cleaning may be worth a try. Anyway, when I removed the air hose that is attached...

    We had a few days of constant rain here (Tropical Storm Nicole really dumped on us) Now one of my headlights is all moist on the inside. I had a few large packs of silica gel sitting around, so I popped the caps and stuffed one inside each headlight. After a couple days, the moisture has...

    I have noticed that there is moisture in both of my rear brake / tail lights that wont shift even when i have had the lights on for a while. I can get this sorted on warrenty but i wanted to know from people what the likely source of this is? Failed seals? Failed units?

    Weird... There is a leaf (maybe something like 3" x 4") inside my headlamp but no moisture. I'm wondering if my friend with my spare keys got into the car when I was out of town and played this prank? Hah!

    I have a 03 Passat GLS I just got a few weeks ago, and I have noticed it having quite a bit of moisture in the headlights. Is there any good aftermarket headlights or a fix for this? It got a little bit worse after installing my HID's because I had to run the wires out of the weather boots on...

    I walked out of work today to grab a cd out of my B5.5, and I noticed that my driver's side headlight had a crapload of frozen moisture on the lense. :( I have never seen this on my car before (frozen or melted). Where could it be coming from? It this something that is simple to fix, or...

    I was wondering if there was any way I could to the inside of my headlight assembly to get rid of the moisture buildup inside of the unit. I called for a quote on a new unit (figuring it's possibly a broken seal) and it's going to be nearly $450!!! Any suggestions or alternatives? (I have an 02...

    Does anyone have experience with having excessive moisture on windows INSIDE of their Passat? I live in Boston and have had more than one morning when I could almost scrape the inside of the windows as well as outside. Even on not so cold days when the humidity is really high, I get a lot of...
