6R Headlight question

Recommended Posts

Hi any idea why they have wedged these bags of foam in and around the headlights? The other side to access the low beam bulb has a black cap on it, as this side doesn't. The bags are labeled vw so not something someone else has done. Thanks. post-918587-0-51444100-1414341181_thumb.post-918587-0-35130800-1414341192_thumb.

So does both sides have a bag? And only one side has a cap?

At a guess I would say one cap has fallen off?

Or perhaps that light had moisture in it and they put the bag inside to trap it?

Only one side has the grey bag inside the light which is also the side without the cap. Both sides have the white bag that's tucked into the body work, just seems a bit odd

Seems like an after thought really.

Are the bags empty or do they have some material inside?

Are the headlights a little dull? I remember a friend saying they would sometimes do this when the lights get water ingress after they wash they for the first time.

I reckon if you went to vw and complained about the lights, they would be inclined to replace them without too much hassle, as its been done to prevent something.

Its a fire hazard really, as it gets hot In there.
