Fender Camera

Have a 2016 Sprinter Citation. Fender camera has some moisture in it. Anyone know the part number or make by chance?

Can you take a hair dryer and dry out the moisture? Just wondering.

I had the same problem. Replacing the camera with a new one is a bear, because the cable goes all the way through to the dash / radio (no disconnect at the camera end). I unscrewed the camera housing, unscrewed the gasketed cover on the underside, and was able to dry it out; then replaced the cover with a bead of silicone sealant added, and screwed it back on the body. Is working fine.

Appreciate the info. Mine has a coaxial type connector under the hood so looks easy enough. I just didn't want to crack the paint until I had a replacement. The moisture is directly behind the glass so not sure drying the gasket will work. Are you saying you where you able to get the glass out? If you did I'll give that a whirl.
