hey all i have an 05 sts and the drivers sideheadlamp has condensation forming in it. i tried to look at it to see if i can fix er up but it looks like i would have to remove the bumper cover. im a tattoo artist and not a mechanic so it seems to be a bit out of my range as far as repairs. now am i looking at itwrong or is that the way to go... and is it an easy fix or do i nee to replace it? also if thee are anytechs in the baltimore, md area willing to trade work to fix it for a tattoo, i would happily trade. i been a successfull tattoo artist for over 9 years and work in a well establish and respected shop in the area. any help please, thanks mike:thumbsup:

Condensation forms in rainy weather and clears up on its own when the rainy spell stops.

The interior of the headlamp is vented through some small holes. Maybe they are plugged.

Is you Caddy still under warranty? If so bring it back to the dealer, if not I would purchase a new one and have an autobody shop install it.

There is a factory TSB regarding condensation in the lights. It has a schedule of degrees of water collection and whether or not the housing will be replaced under warranty.

I had this problem. I'm still under warranty. I took it in they fixed the driver side...they also did a test on the passenger side (one which I hadn't noticed condensation on) and said that one was bad as well so they even fixed that one.

I paid $0.00.
