Ok we had a lot of rain and now have a wet headlight. Is this fixable or will Volvo replace the headlight?

We usual replaced them at the dealer if the light has no cracks in it

Re: Moisture in Headlight (97GLTbrick)

I just went through this whole process for the past two days. If no spontaneous keggers/parties occur, you should be able to knock this out in an afternoon including drying time. <p>lol my car was down for two days... due to a headlight fix that should have taken no more than a couple of hours <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>and just wait... i bet you next time it rains... i'll be seeing water droplets on the inside of the headlight...

get the water out ASAP. If, in VNA'a sole opinion, moisture causes the Xenon to fail you will be out anywhere from $1,100. to $1,500. That is NOT a typo. They will not cover it under warranty. I called VNA and they stuck it [in my ear].
