Has anybody had this problem? 2013. Huge rain storm late at night, drove it the next morning fine, parked came back out and the right hid was out. Went to work and came back and you can see the water inside the housing.

Heard of it here and there with the older 10-12 models. Not yet for the 13s. Take a pic just in case it dries out. Try to include a VIN or your front license plate (if your state requires one) in the shot to confirm it is your car and go to the dealer. Will be covered under warranty for the housing and the HID damage. Should take 2 to 3 days to get parts in once you get it there and another day to fix.

If there is actually water building up in the headlight, it'll be covered by the warranty. If its just some condensation, its normal, it'll go away.
From what I know (not completely sure) I heard the gen headlight has some kind of drain system. System in which it drains/dispose water in headlight and for condensation on the bottom side of the headlight, its normal drive for 10 min and it'll go away.

Yes the 10-12's have a breathing/draining system, the 13' prob have a similar design. Also, park car in sun 30-60mins and itll go away

Op, Many threads on this atleast for the 10-12, its prob the same
