Bentley Continental Headlight Misting

At Bentley Conversions we has lost count of the amount of Bentley GT’s that we have upgraded the headlights with full Xenon bulb and Angel Eyes during which time we have seen many with a misting problem to the headlights as seen here:

Same car, same day, no misting problem.

It is usually the nearside lamp that is affected.

The nearside light is more prone than the offside to misting but not totally immune as we have also seen misting to that side also. So what can you do to rid of this problem ? Well Bentley themselves have tried to eradicate the misting issue by putting in a vent to the lamp but unfortunately to little affect so the following may help;
1. Avoid using pressure washers around the lamps.

2. The heat from the headlights themselves can be used to dry light misting.

3. Avoid placing non-breathable covers over the vehicle.

We obviously split the headlights when we fit the Angel Eyes and we do this in a temperature controlled room to avoid moisture build and in most cases this seems to work but there are no guarantees.
