TheGlassMaker Headlights can and will fog up reguardless of how well sealed they are that why they are vented on the back to help let out moister.

Wetsuitxninja I haven't noticed mine fogging, but my passenger side has some water spots in it. Guess I will have to make a trip to the dealership. For what they are charging for the replacement housings they shouldn't be fogging\spotting.

Mines on record but like I said when it was there didnt show up !! it shows after ive been driving it ,then park it for a while . So my guess its cold and humid outside and the that air meets the hotter air from the engine then it causes the mist. My dealer told me too bring it back when the mist is present then they will take pictures and send them to Ford I have pictures but they wouldnt take them. Anyways havent used the car since ..

So I took the car into the dealership Friday and of course the mist didnt show up , so they said they have logged it in the computer when it comes back to take it straight to the dealer and they will take pictures and send to Ford.. Asfor the hood and tailgate theyre bodyshop adjusted them up now that problem is fixed, Just the headlights now

Have'nt been to the dealership as of yet due to bad weather here. I phoned them to let them know the situation, and is now booked in for Friday the 15th. Also since having the car have also noticed the hood does'nt fit properly and also the rear hatch has a big gap on the passenger side.
