When normal condensation occurs , a thin film of mist can form on the interior of the lens . The thin mist eventually clears and exits through the vents during normal operation . Clearing time may take as long as 48 hours under dry weather conditions . Examples of acceptable condensation are : • Presence of thin mist ( no streaks , drip marks or droplets ) • Fine mist covers less than 50 % of the lens Examples of unacceptable moisture ( usually caused by a lamp water leak ) are : • Water puddle inside the lamp • Large water droplets , drip marks or streaks present on the interior of the lens Take your vehicle to dealer for service if any of the above conditions of unacceptable moisture are present . 43 2009 Grand Marquis ( grn ) Owners Guide , 1st Printing USA ( fus )
