    I've got some crystal clear headlights for my 1998 Chevy, and one just started to fog up this week, after having them for over a year. Does anyone know how to prevent this? And also, does anyone know how to remove the condensation from the lens? Any help would be appreciated.

    I have hear about big problems with aftermarket lights. fogging up,or the lens falling off.Or not having enough adjustment. I drilled a small hole in the bottom them before to let water out.
    Good luck.!!

    You will have to open it up and remove the water and then re-seal it. You have an opening that is allowing condensation to form.

    Easy. Just let it sit out and dry completly, then use silicone around where the lense and housing meet up. That is where the moisture is getting in from.

    Also, make sure the gasket around the bulb isn't kinked or pinched...

    I had a set with a name with a j. Could never get them to seal. Bought IPCW one and never had a problem.

    I think mine are called American Eagle or something like that, but I bought them from the LMC Cataloge.
