    Fogs up like condensation?
    If yes then check the rubber caps on the back mine did this and it took me a week to keep it from happening(mine did it on both sides)

    Yes, it's condensation. Maybe I'll swap the rubber caps with the drivers side. I hope that's all it is.

    Leave them off during the day while the truck sits in the sun I did that and it helped then put them back on at night to prevent the condensation from hopefully returning

    Ouch man that sucks

    If you want wait till they clear during the day then leave the caps on if it returns try it again if needed
    But if it is in the sun directly it shouldn't take long to clear up it took mine two to three hours to fully dry in the day

    Re: Headlights Starting to fog

    I just bought a 2003 ESV and of course the headlight lenses were fogged. I thought at first that it was just like other older cars with the same problem... So I was delighted to this see thread upon my first visit to the forum after signing up. I was even happier to discover that the suggestion actually works. It's amazing how much newer a vehicle looks when the headlights aren't all crappy looking. Thanks fellow Caddy owners.

    Will water damage the silver reflector coating? I know it did on my fog lights when the lenses came loose.

    Yes it will only if it touches the coating for a long time

    So.... I guess the trick is to keep the water level low, outer lense face down...... and swish carefully?????
