    Angry How difficult is it to repare the HEADLIGHT parking light strip? on cts 3.6l DI

    My passenger headlight got some condensation in it and now the parking light strip is not working.

    how difficult is it to repair this issue? I want to do as much as I can before I try to buy one these are factory hid so they can be pricy.

    is there any instructions on how to repair this issue?

    No need to double post! Or is it triple post?

    i've had both non hid model headlights and switched to hid model. i took them apart to install LED turns, and while i had them apart i replaced the LED for the white "light tube" that was simple. the LED strip may be a different story though. and yes there is an LED strip on both non HID and HID models. i'm not sure if they are the same though. i do'nt know how handy you are, but you can take almost any little led chip and solder a new one on. i just bought a couple cree chip replacements off ebay from china for like $4 and used a solder iron and some solder. if it's broke already, you might as well at least try
