Default moisture in head lghts

When I picked up my 14 Ram three weeks ago it had just been washed by the dealer. Well it went down to 10 deg. that night. The next morning I had ice on the inside of the head light lens. I called the dealer and made an appointment to bring in the truck for service. As it turns out the service manager told me that Chrysler has issued a letter not to change the head lights at this time. I'm picking up the truck tomorrow morning. I will get copy of that letter. It only happened the one time.

See attached photos,




Is this normal? I don't think so.

What do you guys think?

Lenny

Pictures not showing??

A little moisture after washing and a temp change is normal. The lights are not 100% sealed and do breathe. When I bought my truck, they had washed it and kept in the warm garage. Took delivery and it was very cold out, everything fogged up, lights included. Hasn't done it since.

My lights fogged up the first night after I drive her home for the dealer. It got down to about 20 degrees. We've had colder since and it hasn't happened again. I thought I remembered reading in the manual that some slight fogging can occur because the lights aren't sealed. At any rate, mine cleared up almost immediately the next morning when I turned them on.

I saw a video that JJ from retro shop made about this. If I find it I will post it up. But essentially there are 2 or 3 vents on the back of the light housing. You have to pop them out and reinstall them after adjusting the vent. I can't remember exactly how he did it though.

Edit: found it here

I picked up the truck from the dealer yesterday. He gave me a copy of the service bulletin and it says it is normal for some moisture to get inside of the lens. I haven't had any since I picked up the truck three weeks ago.
So all is well for the time being.
