    V70 glass headlights, plastic headlights

    My V70's glass headlights are condensating. I've tried and failed to fix them.

    Can I easily swap them for the plastic ones?
    I mean, are the reflectors and lampholders compatible?

    I suppose what I'm asking is, can I unbolt a glass headlingt, undo the lampholders, then fit them back into a plastic headlight, bolt it up, and it'll work? Beam wise?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Will make no difference fitting the plastic light units and a very costly swap.
    Have you got the rear covers fitted correctly? Did you retro fit HID's, when the stock lamp is a H7 Halogen?
    There must be a reason the glass is condensating.

    No, standard bulbs.
    I reckon the seals on the headlights are done. I tried drying them out and seaing with silicone. I'm not going to start taking them apart, I tried that on a different car years ago and mucked it right up!
    So the plastic units just fit? Correct reflectors for the bulbs I've got?
    I prefer the look of plastic.

    Not sure if 06/07 models change to plastic units? If they did, then they should be identical fitment.
