This could be cause by moisture that entered the headlamp assembly during
manufacturing, or it could be a defective seal. The easiest way to get rid
of it is to remove the entire headlamp assembly from the vehicle, remove all
the bulb access covers, then set it out on a hot sunny day for a few hours
to evaporate the water. If you lack a hot sunny day, then you could use a
hair dryer. If the water comes back, then you have a defective seal and it
should be replaced under warranty (at least they will under the US warranty,
Yes the fog dissapears after a drive with the lights on.
What worry's me is that the units will look sooner older than wihtout fog.
And fog in the headlights looks very stupid for a Benz. Expensive car....so
i expect a little perfection.
If it does disappear with the lights on, then just remove the rear dust
covers/access panels, run the lights for 20 minutes or so and let the water
evaporate. This is actually more common than you'd think. Now, if the water
comes back after it evaporates, then it means there's a bad seal and it
should be replaced under warranty.
I have been to the dealer again.
They have tested the units by spraying water on it. And yes a little fog
appears. But....it stays between normal fog appearens....no reel
Maybe next time a BMW or a Lexus? Lexus who picks up the car and return it
( for free) when the car has to see the garage.
Quess not....see what the future brings. Do like the latest models of
Mercedes very much.
and yeah.....I got my car cleaned for free :-)
It was getting a little dirty by the snow and salt on the roads.
