    20190420_095520. Sold my accord and have defected to team CR-V. it's a 2016 I.6 I-DTEC ex model. All in all quite impressed but have a couple of things I need to check.
    I have some moisture in the headlight ..towards the wing corner of the light. Car was at the dealership a number of months so was prob sitting up a bit..not sure if that would be relevant. Car has only 24k miles and is immaculate.. no signs of damage . I don't fancy replacing them and am waiting to hear back from the garage.

    2nd one is underneath the wheel arches.. they don't look like what I'm used to from driving Accords . No longer on the inside... with some exposed holes .. I was wondering was the liner missing? Or maybe that's normal.

    Will upload some pictures also 20190419_083651.

    Nice and clean under there! In answer to your question, my 2016 CR-V has wheel arch liners all round with the rears having the spray reducing liners.

    Mine is now a few months short of 3 years old and has no condensation in any in any of the lights. It is not garaged.

    Thanks Keith. So are you saying your liners cover the whole insides of the front wheel arches..I have liners on the outer sides but not on the inner wall. I was surprised not all the opening were closed either. I will have to park beside one and compare notes! I removed the moisture during the day ..removing the headlight build/ hairdryer job. When the temp dropped this even it did the same thing... is there vents on these lights... maybe they are blocked .. also wondering if they were cleaning the bay could have moisture have regressed in ? Getting some silica gel also ..might replace the bulb/seals also.

    Another shot of the open holes not plugged with no liner.

    Yes, the liners cover the whole inside of the arches back and front. I can't help with the headlights I'm afraid.

    Read on another forum that it is a known issue, so if still in warranty visit dealer.

    I have this problem :Frown: I bought the car from local Honda dealer in Oct 2017 - it will be three years old in July so am assuming I can take it back to them under the three year warranty (only done 18K) ? TIA
