EXTERIOR LAMP FOGGING
This bulletin has been amended. The Applied Vehicles and Service Procedure sections have been revised. Please discard all previous versions.
APPLIED VEHICLES: 2001-2010 Nissan, All Models
Occasionally customers may notice water vapor or fog in the exterior lamps. This is generally NOT due to a defect.
The following information, illustrations, and flow chart are provided to help you in determining if an incident for water/condensation in the lamps is normal or not.
All current exterior lamp assemblies are vented to the atmosphere (not sealed).
||This is necessary to allow for expansion and contraction of air from temperature "variations" (warmer or colder) without damage to the lamp.
||Moisture in the air sometimes "travels" into and out of the lamp assembly through these vents.
||Certain environmental conditions may cause moisture to condense.
