    Well, that was weird, thanks for the heads up!

    I've been dealing with fogging headlights for a couple of years now after a retrofit. When I originally baked my headlights I found that the protective layer on the inside was yellowing and actually seemed burned away close to my bulbs. To correct this I had to sand and polish it all away and then I put on (I believe) Turtle Wax headlight UV sealant on the inside and a UV protective vinyl to the outside of the headlights. Even though I've had 2 professional shops reseal my headlights and we've even installed aftermarket breather vents and silica packs, the fogging is even leading to large droplets now. I've learned that all inside lens coatings also have an anti-fog component, so that is almost certainly my issue at this point. I'm hoping that a product like Meguiar's keep clear on the inside of the headlights might help to rectify the situation, but don't have any confirmed info on any products at all from any manufacturer being able to prevent fogging. Any helpful information would be a appreciated, I have a Saab 9-2X so parts are not readily available and I'd like to avoid spending $650 on new headlights.

    That sounds like a frustrating situation. We are sorry to hear that. G17804 Keep Clear Headlight Coating would be our offering.
