Condensation in the rear lamps

Moisture can appear inside the lamp housings of your Volvo C40 or EC40, especially if the weather has been cold or wet.

Moisture may occur inside the rear lamps. This is normal and depends on factors such as how the car is parked and used. The lamp and its components are designed to withstand this, and the condensation is normally vented out of the lamp housing as the car is used.

Acceptable condensation

  • A fine mist covering the lens.

Examples of unacceptable condensation

  • Standing water inside the lamp.
  • Remaining streaks or water spots on the inside of the lens.
