After having the passenger side replaced three times I now have spots on both headlights. Can anyone tell me if Ford has a fix to this problem yet? If they do how do you know the headlight assembly is one with the fix? Thanks.

OH Man! I noticed that when going over a few of the Stangs in the parking lot. To make sure, you're talking about the ones that look to be on the inside, right? I made sure mine didn't have any but do they form after time?

2nd driver side here. A previous post had Art Hyde? e-mailing someone on this board on the same issue, basically he said it was caused by the bulbs. After June they put different bulbs in the assemblies. Dont know about this my 2nd replacement had spots straight out of the box! :sad:

Stung, yes...the spots happen over time.

svtoa0100282, this is the first I am hearing that the bulbs cause the spotting. Can you point me to some documentation that I can bring to the dealership? Thanks.

John

There's a thrad here with an e-mail response to a Bullitt club member, can't remember the thread name but I know it's within the last month. Sorry not much help. Anyone else out there in Bullitt Land? I think you can do a search. I'll look see if I have any luck though.
Found one thread will look for the other w/e-mail reply, the one I found is under "Mechanical issues" Waterspots inside headlight lenses to start with.

I got a reply from Hyde that all lenses made since June are spot-free. My replacement lights installed about the first of September are clear.

The adhesive used to bond the lamps together left the residue on the inside.

My passenger side hdlt has a fingerprint smudge on the inside! Quality is Job #1? Yeah right. At least it seems the dealers are taking care of it.

I too have spots on my passenger side headlight and was waiting to find our about the fix in this forum. Looks like they have corrected the problem, so I'll be calling my dealer to get it fixed. Thanks for the info.

Well my dealer fixed mine at no cost today!!
I don't know if they just pulled them off and
cleaned them or replaced with new ones but the spots are gone and that is what counts!

Stopped by the dealer on Friday. They are ordering two replacement headlights for me. Also talk to them about TSB 15175 on the defective 1-2 shift fork. They said the would take care of that as well when they do the headlights. The service advisor says they have done many transmissions already for this problem.
