What did this entail? I've had moisture condensation in my passenger side headlight since I've had my W8 and my warranty company refuses to cover it.

the headlamp does not always come on. turn on/off or hit the parking brake. no condensation or moisture.
have them checked to see if they are sealed properly
i really dont know. would vw warrant them if your were still in warranty

I found the cause of my infrequent drivers side condensation issue - the cover on the H7/ W5W access has a broken tab that the wire clamp holds onto.
The part is 10.00 at the dealer.

I just checked my covers - both had a broken tab and were hanging open, though no condensation issues yet. Part is a poor design, the gussets on the tab the clamp holds on to need to be bigger and come out the whole way. Anyways, was able to use epoxy on one, good as new. The other one is held on with cable ties, will pick up another one the next time I have to head to the dealer, but I'm worried a new one would just break again.

My Passenger Headlight is dead when it is warm outside.
One pull on the Handbrake makes it work.
I wished that I would not have the lights on at all.
Wisconsin Police seems to look for these Daytime Runners.

Did they replace the bulb too? I've heard the bulbs sometimes act funny when they are starting to burn out... just a thought though I know replacing a bulb is an inexpensive proposition

I know a few on here have disabled their daytime running lights, installed a euro switch and use their fogs as DRL's Don't know it that would work with Wisconsin laws...
