Misting headlights on Evora 400 - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC/Other - The Lotus Forums Jump to content

Recommended Posts

When it rains or when I’ve washed the car combined with using the headlights results in misting of the lens.  It happens on both lights and significantly reduces the effectiveness of the lights. I don’t use the car much at night, although it is something that needs to be fixed

 

Just interested to see if others have experienced the same. I seem to recollect some threads for the S1 cars.

My 2010 NA still mists although the dealer told me they sorted it still mists ?

i don’t drive at night so be a little nervy if it’s stoll misted ? I find that most disappeared after driving for 20 mins but I think it will return if there was downpour ?

The headlights aren't sealed to be air-tight, so a certain amount of moisture in the air will cause them to mist or show condensation. Some have been successful in reducing this effect with some small silica packets placed in the housing, behind the bulb dust cap. Just make sure they aren't in constant contact with anything that can get really hot.

Completely normal in most cars, not just Lotus, to be honest.
