    (Another) Leon with Condensation in Rear Light Cluster

    Tested out my snow foam attachment and Avalanche on my car last weekend. Rinsed it off, but noticed condensation on my outer rear light cluster. :cry: A bit concerned because large water beads have formed, and it still hasn't dried up. They're now running down the inside of the plastic casing...

    During the snow & ice a few weeks ago, I hit a kerb side on - only slowly. I looked at the time, and it just looked like a scrape along the edge. However I've looked closer this morning, and I noticed a hairline crack: How worried should I be about this? I don't know if it's gone...

    Just picked up my LCR from the local SEAT dealer and when I got home I noticed that both of the headlight lenses have cracks in them. One side has a crack on the bottom ridge and the other has multiple vertical cracks. I presume if left the way it is, the headlamps will eventually steam up...
