In fact, whether it is an ordinary halogen headlight, a xenon headlight, or an LED headlight, as far as the overall structure of the headlight is concerned, there will be a ventilation rubber tube. When the headlights are used, heat is generated, and the function of the breather pipe is to discharge this heat and maintain the normal operating temperature of the headlights. On the other hand, moisture in the air will enter the headlight through the breather tube and adhere to the lampshade. As the water vapor gathers, water droplets will flow down the lampshade. This situation is mostly caused by large temperature differences, and is most likely to occur in winter and rainy seasons.

After closing the engine cover, the water vapor cannot be discharged quickly, and the water vapor trapped in the engine cabin is Possibly entering the headlight from the vent rubber tube.

The above are all cases of slight fog or water droplets inside the headlights, which will usually disappear on their own after a certain period of time. If the situation is serious and it is a new car, it is recommended to ask the manufacturer or 4S store for replacement or repair, or you can open the lamp cover, dry it, and check whether there is any damage or leakage on the surface of the headlight. If there is no damage, , replace the headlight rear cover seal and breather pipe.
