I ordered the yellow fog lights from XenonDepot and within 3 weeks I had really bad water and condensation in my passenger fog which made the housing inside start to turn red. The drivers side fog didn't have water but had little pieces of dirt in the housing. Obviously there is a seal that broke but once I removed them from my car the bulbs seemed pretty tight.

Has anyone else had this issue with the yellow fog lights from XenonDepot?

Here are some pics to show you what I'm talking about.

Where did you order them from? Most parts like these comes with a 30days warranty and since you said 3weeks, you have about 9 days left =p

They e-mailed me a UPS return label, I'm only returning the fog lights though, not the harness and switch and what not, what about you? I've got mine packaged up already, mailing them back tomorrow as well. I found out where they were leaking from.

Yeah, same here. I'm just mailing the fogs. Kinda sucks tho. Driving around w/to big ass holes were the fogs use to be. I couldn't figure out where the leak was coming from, but I know it wasn't were the blub connect to the fog

I know what you mean, I zip tied my fog harness to the bumper so it won't fall and start dragging and what not. Anyways, mine were leaking from the poor caulking job that the yellow lens connects to the housing. I'm going to do some modifications on the new set so it won't happen again.

sounds like a good idea. Add silicone to the outside?
Yes, but not a lot, sometimes too much can be a bad thing haha, but it would be a good idea because if they leaked before, chances are they'll do it again.

Another thing I'm going to do is replace the bulbs, not going HID in the fogs quite yet, but I'm going to try Sylvania SilverStar Ultra H11. Going to be a lot brighter ;)

This happened to me three days after I put them in(water in one):firemad:... I was planning on taking it out and seeing what I can do but judging by your responses I should just see if they'll take it back an replace it.... I'm gunna check it out tomorrow and if it still has moisture in it I'll find the problem and send it back if not I'll find the problem and try to fix it I guess:dontknow:
