Summary
WHEN DEALING WITH CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS OF EXCESSIVE CONDENSATION AND/OR WATER WITHIN THE HEADLAMP UNIT, FIRST DETERMINE IF ALL THE BULB SOCKETS ARE PRESENT AND CORRECTLY INSTALLED. IN MOST CASES YOU WILL FIND THAT THE BULB SEAL NO. 1 (A) OR HID BULB SEAL NO. 1 (B) AND BULB SEAL NO. 2 (C) SOCKET COVERS HAVE NOT BEEN CORRECTLY INSTALLED OR ARE MISSING DUE TO IMPROPER PRIOR REPAIRS (I.E., CUSTOMER REPLACING THE HEADLAMP BULBS OR BODY SHOP NOT TRANSFERRING THEM WHEN REPLACING THE HEADLAMP UNIT(S) DUE TO A COLLISION). ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY MISSING SOCKET COVERS, HID MODULE SEAL (D), OR MISSING BUMPER BRACKETS (E) IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY POLICY.
