Hey All,

I just purchased my Rebel on Saturday. Amazing truck. However, I noticed condensation in each of the headlights after it was washed at the dealership. I'll be bringing mine back to the dealership for side steps and mudflaps and will get them to look at the headlights too. I have researched and found that there are vents on the headlight housings themselves that need to be open. That could be the case for my truck. Getting the headlights out is a bit of work but nothing crazy but I will let the dealership look at it before I start taking it apart.

I just wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem and what they did to fix it or what the dealer did to fix it.

Thanks in advance.

Seems like a common problem but I'm not sure how you can fix it.



I think someone replaced the bulb?

Sorry I can't help much.
Thanks for the quick reply and link! I think the heat generated from HID's would actually help too. Never thought of it that way. Going to get the dealership to look at it this week as they claim they can get rid of it...i'd like to see how.

I already have plans on getting HID's (with the Anti-Flicker module) from Diode Dynamics but not installing until they have a look for warranty purposes.

Thanks again for your reply! (I was pumped to see a Forum dedicated to the Rebel)

Both mine fog. Ram apparently says that if it goes away in 15 minutes of turning them off, then they are ok. My dealer ordered me new lights anyways. They are currently on back order

Figured that would be their response. Thanks for chiming in! I had similar condensation on lights that i've modified before so my automatic thought is the seal but its good they've ordered new lights for you. See what happens i suppose! It not a huge deal to me, just something I think shouldn't happen right after I drive off the lot.

My new lights came in yesterday. My concern with the condensation is that it'll freeze and possible crack them
