    Default Looking for gaskets or seals for headlights

    I am looking to find new seals for my headlights going into the covers. I just put on new lenses and still getting moisture inside. Any ideas?

    What year truck? The new bulbs should have had new orings on them. The housing itself could be the issue. A quick fix is to pull of the housing and drill a few small holes in the bottom of the lens. That will get rid of your condensation and it will not return.

    Thanks for the tip, Someone had told that to me a while ago, I just didn't want to drill into the new lenses, but if thats all it takes then at least they wont fill with water.

    had a shop order them i am sure they got them off of EBAY, my guess is aftermarket.all the lights are new, just bought them. i was pissed when they had moisture in them after a couple of days.

    That stinks. I have heard that a lot of aftermarket lights leak (not all, but a lot)
