Anyone facing headlamp condensation with Creta?

User manual says, "After heavy driving, rain or washing headlight and taillight lenses could appear frosty. This condition is caused by the temperature difference between the lamp inside and outside. This is similar to the condensation on your windows inside your vehicle during the rain and doesnít indicate a problem with your vehicle. If the water leaks into the lamp bulb circuitry, we recommend that the system be checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer."

But i couldn't find the scenario with other cretas around me. Bit confused, whether this need to be bothered or to pass on as per the user manual. Some photos are attached. Even though its common across vehicles, expecting the experience from fellow creta owners.

Did you or the ASC change the headlight bulb or indicator bulb recently?

Check that rubber boot behind the headlight bulbs. May be damaged or not seated properly letting moisture inside.

This may not be directly related but I had condensation in my i20's projector headlamps yesterday while driving in moderate rainfall in Ooty and the outside temperature was 12 deg. Never had that happen during rains in Chennai so I passed it off as a one-off. Perhaps the cooler weather in Ooty was the cause, I'm not sure. Back in Chennai now and there's no condensation even after an extensive car wash. I guess you can see if it persists and then take a call on it.

Yes. Bulbs were changed. Me too suspect that this happened after changing the bulbs. But i did that carefully and the rubber seal is intact. Couldn't find any visible damage with the cap or rubber seal. Rechecked and refitted the dust cover along with the rubber seal after facing the condensation issue. But no change.

Is there any tip to refit it, so that the problem can be resolved?

It won't be any damage to the dust cap. I think there's moisture trapped inside the unit when you opened it. Leave the car out on a sunny day and it should clear it. I had this problem on the Swift and left the car out for a few minutes.

It's getting cleared after some time. But will be back again on a rainy day after headlamp is switched on.

Would you mind posting some before and after images of the install so it would help others to order it. Thanks in advance.

One of the effects of rapidly increasing salt in your salt and pepper hair style is that one tends to forget certain mundane processes which normally once done would have stuck in the grey matter.

In the instant case, my dear Nanook has started to show the service reminder in the MID as soon as i start the vehicle . I reset this seven months back but now it is again showing as overdue and i am at my wits end having completely erased the process from my RAM how to reset it.

Could someone kindly again share the process to reset the service reminder.

Hello Creta owners and fellow BHPians,

I need advice on Creta and is it worth the premium over the Brezza. I am currently in the market for an automatic diesel SUV. The problem that I am facing is convincing my brain of the premium that I have to pay for Creta. I am currently exploring getting a Vitara Brezza ZDi+ vs the Creta 2018 S and the Creta 2017 SX+ from a dealer. The premium that I will be paying for S will be INR 3L and for SX+ INR 3.8L over the Brezza.

In favour of Brezza

1. Its damn cheap!
2. Its fuel efficient
3. It looks really delicious
4. Superb feature list vs. the 2018 S auto

In favour of Creta

1. Love those alloys in the 2017 SX+
2. While I was ok with the TD of Brezza until I TD the Creta. It blew me away in terms of smooth shifting, rapid acceleration and NVH levels
3. Its big and full sized SUV - though I am based out of Bangalore so not sure if thatís a good thing
4. Interior quality: I have recently sold my Audi S3 and I felt at home in Hyundai. I have previously owned a Ritz and I really cant take rattling interiors in 2018

I am sure a lot of Creta owners would have faced a similar dilemma be it auto or manual. Would be great to know your experiences and recommendations.

@Modslease excuse if this is not the right forum for this question

Is this car going to be your primary drive or secondary ride? If it is going to take over the duties performed by the Audi, I'd say go for the Creta. You might end up regretting purchasing the Brezza a few months later.

If this is a beater car which the chauffeur will use, then go ahead and buy the Brezza and save $$$. Get the S. The SX+ is too old.

Thanks a lot! The car is going to be self driven, though why do you suggest the S over the SX+

Buy a new SX+. Don't buy the 2017 models, they have spent too much time in the stockyard.

How come a hot selling car such as Creta has a 2017 year vehicle unsold in the middle of 2018?

By 2017, I mean the pre facelift variant. In fact most of the Hyundai showrooms have 2-3 units and they are liquidating at fairly good price!
