    Default Moisture inside headlight assembly ('05 Mazda 3 hatch)

    Hi there, I'm new to this forum. My driver side headlight on a Mazda 3 2005 hatchback GS has moisture/water inside. I noticed it about 2 weeks ago and since it has been raining in Toronto for the past few days, the amount of moisture inside has been really more noticeable. The passenger side doesn't have this issue at all.



    I've been looking up how to fix it and a leak will most likely need to be sealed (not really comfortable doing this by myself). If not, I was also thinking of buying used OEM headlight assembly for the driver side and have it installed by my mechanic. I haven't done much research into aftermarket HIDs (I saw some being sold anywhere from $200-$400 for left & right headlight) but if I was to buy them and have it installed somewhere, how much would it cost?

    I really appreciate if you guys could give me some advice/tips on what to do. Thank you!

    Hey,
    Either you can diy, just open them in the oven, 225 for 15, and add some of this: http://www.gtaretrofits.com/shop/hid...butyl-sealant/
    Or I can do that for you. You'd have to provide the headlights off the car. Send a pm if you'd like to arrange a time for me to do it. Or you can purchase the butyl off the site at any time.
    Modifications? I've forgotten more than I remember. Click here for the list.
