    HID headlight housings?

    I bought the headlight conversions from Eurolights, used the headlight housings I got from them and put in h7 HID's....My question is to any of you guys that have gotten the conversion kits, do any of you have any trouble with condensation or water getting into the housings???.....And if so, what did u do to stop it???

    Water in H7 EuroLight

    The best fix is to get a 0 ring, install on base of lamp where it fits to
    Eurolamp, cost of O ring is about 50 cent, also use grease arount the
    o ring. That should correct water problem.

    O ring

    Hi, the 0 -ring that comes with the eurolights is not very good,
    check out Homedepot or ace hardware, it must have a good fit
    (tight) in order to keep out the water.

    Well, mine never sees rain so it doesn't matter in my case but I have never seen any condensation inside either. Is it possible that some are better than others or maybe they changed o-rings?

    Mine came with the o-rings but still leaks, I really don't drive mine in the rain, but they get water in them from me just washing my car....I bought 4 new housings with the o-rings included from someone else other then eurolamps which never did answer my email, assholes, hopefully these ones work, but if not I'm gonna try home depo or some hardware store to find a better o-ring....I'm also gonna try to make some kind of cap or something to go over the rear of the housing where u can see the bulb going into the housing....U think GM would have put something there to better protect the housing and wiring from the weather, but I guess it must have been too much $$$ for there building budget....Thanks for all the info tho guys
