I just received a call from Chrysler group, and he wanted the name of the dealer I took my car to. He stated, he wanted to give them the new TSB. I guess we'll see.... Has anyone else heard this?

No call from Chrysler at this time, please keep us updated. I hope there really is a TSB for this.

Headlight Condensation

Someone mentioned at TSB in another thread and, after a quick search, I couldn't find anything…

Anyone have something OFFICIAL they can point to..?

Go to your dealer and have them look through headlamp housing TSBs. There are two fixes available. One has to do with changing out dust covers, the other has to do with changing out the module that connects the bulb to the housing. Get the dust cover fix.

If your mechanic can't figure out that there is an existing TSB, they should be relieved. Unf-cking acceptable that even with such a widespread problem....every dealer and even Chrysler are playing the "I'm clueless" game when you bring this problem to them. I should get paid by Chrysler for training their mechanics how to do their jobs.

I'm not a dealer, so I have no friggin clue what the TSB # is. Under this thread, you will see that many of us have gotten the dust cover fix already. While this hasn't entirely fixed the fogging problem, it has diminished it. Get someone with half a brain behind one of their computers, and with a little time and effort, they will find it.

New headlamps will NOT fix the problem unless they include the updated dustcovers. I would not advise this course of action. I told my dealer to replace them, but find the reason they were fogging up, and fix that.

had my 300C for just under a month now, will be a month as of coming wednesday. I only noticed the condensation when one of my lead lamps went dead (passanger side one) and there was a hell of a lot of condensation (covered the whole passanger side lamp except for a few spots) while the driver side was clear and no condensation. Will take it into dealership tomorrow. Noticed a small lip showing on the on the passanger side lamp assembly, its not flush with the body of the panel...the only things i can think of is a) dodgy manufacturing or b) the light blew and the gasses from the build up created enough pressure to pop it out of place????

I am not sure why you guys are struggling with the dealership on this issue. Has anyone tried what I and others have tried without success? its now been months including Storm Nemo and several rain storms and my problem is solved after 15 minutes of putting lube on the rubber o rings. someone else mentioned this and it really worked.

Ok are you talking the o-rings on the light bulb capsule plugs where they lock in place on the reflector assembly?

yes, I did both the large and small on each side. mine started off really wet inside with water droplets. I dried it with a blow dryer from the outside and then lubed the rubber o rings.
Its been good since. search my prior post for the lube I used. pool filter o ring lube.
