Headlight Condensation

I bought a 2011 300 c 2 days ago with the optional xenon headlamps and have noticed a condensation buildup on the inside of both headlights. I live in Florida and the weather has been 75 degrees.

Does anyone have recommendations?

Give it a bit of time, it will slowly work its way out. Chrysler is aware of this nuisance issue.
You can read up on it in many of the 2nd Gen discussions here ----->2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion - Chrysler 300C Forum: 300C & SRT8 Forums

Take the bulbs out and park in direct sunlight for a few hours, it will go away. Really odd OEM Lights are having this problem.

Thanks for the comments. I am at day 3 with condensation. Will park in the sun to see if i can burn off the condensation. I, too feel it is a little strange and may be revisiting the dealer tomorrow.

With the bulb removed you can use a hair dryer on the outside of the lense to drive the moisture out.

Cleared up mine, but I see it's back... I'll have to try the hair dryer trick. I'm sure my neighbours will be impressed that I have to F around with the headlights to solve a problem that shouldn't be there in the first place on this brand new car.

Also noticed I get a lot of condensation in the cold at the bottom of the rear window. Considering the cold air comes in right under that, between it and the trunk lid, I'm not so surprised by that.

Can we remove the bulbs on the xenon projector headlights with AFL?

I just purchased a 300 2011 chrysler limited on 12/9/11= Before I left the dealers I noticed the condensation. Told them give me another car-NOOOOOOOO
so before I drove off the light they were ordering me 2 new headlights, said $1100.00= paid all this oney and it is messed up before I drive it off the
lot. I am devastated to say the least. Nothing from the dealer yet!!! they said they found 4 other cars with the same problem. Lucky Me had to get one of them. It goes and just when I think maybe just maybe its gone- there it is again. I also live in Fl. and it has been 75.
spoke to a guy with an Audi and he does not have this trouble- said its a air leak! can anyone give me some advice?

I have owned my car for about 5 months now, and it doesnt go away. No matter if it was 80+ degrees when I got the car, or now when its anywhere from 30-60.

To all, I visited my dealer today and ordered a set of mud flaps and am having them install them tomorrow morning. I spoke with the service manager and pointed out the condensation and he took some notes and said that they will correct the problem after installing the mud flaps. When I asked had he ever seen this before, he said he has seen this in a few cases. Interesting to me and I will post the results of my visit tomorrow.
