      Re: zafira VXR headlights

      Ian, its Ian with the black zafira (the one you were goning to buy) I had my headlights changed under warranty becaus they were condensated (mainly after washing they car) To qualify for replacement under warranty they have to be switched on and left for a period of time and if condensation doesn't clear within the timescale then new ones are fitted. I am not sure what the timescale is but because I used to work for vauxhall manufacturing and have dealt with various warranty claims (mainly relating to astra g/h) when I tell them something on my car needs doing it just gets done without any quibble

          cheers alex, vauxhall say to turn the headlights on for 20 minutes and if the condensation hasnt cleared by then you can change them

              if you can't get them changed for free and they still have condensation in them drill some small holds in the bottom of the units (they are double skinned so you'll not see them), this will vent them and prevent the condensation.

              Most people think they need sealing up, but actually it's the opposit, they need more ventilation.
