Does anyone have a list of TSB's for 2013 Focus?
It went flawless, like I said, my service manager was more than willing to help me because he said he wanted to make things right for me. Got the headlamps swapped out today, both of them brand new.

Like in the manual, I had a "large water droplets, drip marks or streaks present on the interior of the lens". I took plenty of pics, don't have any on my comp to upload at the moment. It was just a typical warranty process where I dropped off the car, it sat in the queue, they took pictures of the problem and sent them along to Ford for warranty replacement approval. It was easier is my situation I guess if you have a great service guy taking care of you wanting to get things replaced when you present a clear problem.

Here is an example of instant warranty replacement when you take it in lol:






Some days during this rain we've had, the complete headlamp was all fogged up.

If it's a concern to you, mention it. And then if it gets worse, just let the warranty process take over!

Can that be caused by a problem with the vent hole,could it be blocked?

I doubt it. It's been doing it since day 1 and the car has 1000 miles on the clock

One of my 4Runner headlamps had an issue with condensation and the vent tube got mud over the hole and that was what was causing my fogging.
