I find that when it rains, water collects inside the left headlight. I can't see any crack or other means of entry. Any suggestions?

There might be a break in the seal between the clear plastic lens and the lamp body. These are heat sealed together. Check the back - make sure your bulbs are twisted on tightly. There is a rubber o-ring that compresses to the lamp body when the bulbs are installed.

If there is a Hole or "Pass Through" in the Sealing, these Methods could help, but without any Garantuee from my Side that you will have Success.

The Plastic Glass and the Lamp Body can be separated with Heating in your baking Oven. Than it can be glued again. But no Garantuee, No Warranty. Should only be tried if the Sealing is the Problem.

Maybe you can just take off the complete Lamp from the Car and put Glue around the whole Sealing Area and than the Problem is solved. But this is also not so easy.

Only on your Risk.

I know only one who has done the separating, he has had Success (luckily, sure).

Dodge Nitro - headlight replacement


Feb 17, 2020

After looking at all the various products and methods for restoring old, wornout headlamps, we decided to spend a little extra money and just outright replace them. The headlights are aftermarket OEM bought on Amazon (I think) and they turned out really great.
