What up guys, so here's the deal: I'm looking at purchasing a pair of used CCFL Halo lights and apparently the seal has been somewhat compromised. The end result is water apparently entering. I'm not entirely sure if it's condensation or literal sizable amount of water entering. Nonetheless, the guy said if you know what you're doing it should be a piece of cake. So has anybody ever had to do this or have any idea as to how to go about it?
P.S. the lights aren't coming with any directions for install so aside from the water issue i'm wondering if I should just take it to a shop for the install and sealing if it's too risky
I had this issue with my halos a while back, what i did was pop out the bulbs, put a hair dryer to the holes for a few min then leave it sit till it is dry. then get your self some of that black RTV gasket maker (i think its 4 or 5 bucks a tube) and use it around the seal. It worked for me.
outside. where the rubber meets the clear plastic and on the reverse side just to make 100% sure it would not leak again, Also u might wanna heck the pigtail on the headlight my 1st gen plug was not sealed properly and the whole inside of the headlight plug and the connection of the harness started to corrode. so use a glue gun if u can on it to make sure that seal night water tight also
