: How I fixed condensation in headlight issue

Hi guys, I had a problem with condensation in my right head light, especially after a car wash, if it was humid out, if it rained etc so at first I thought maybe it was a crackhead headlight then I removed it and checked it carefully, there were no cracks but the culprit was the low beam cover, somehow the clip on it was broken so the seal between the cap and headlight was broken causing my issue. I went ahead and replaced both low and high beam covers got them online from bmw south altanta

1 LAMP COVER LOW BEAM 63126916095 $18.36
1 Covering cap high beam 63126916096 $14.03

Problem solved, no more condensation issue.

Just thought I'd share this incase someone runs into the same problem, might save em $1200 or so as I had nearly replaced the whole headlight yet it was an $18 problem.
