May be the same problem I had with my fog light. The seal where the light bulb goes in was not set in tight.I would make sure you got a good seal there before you take off the lens and reseal that.

first off what u need to do is dry the headlights inside, by either leaving the car out in the sun or using a blow dryer to remove the excess moisture in the housing

then remove the headlights off the car and try to add some silicone around the entire housing where the light meets the lens covers

lots of people has done this and it works, just try to keep it clean, ive seen some bad dirty jobs before

hope this helps

moisture can get thru the lightbulb seats, maybe u should check the rubber seal on the light bulbs themselves, make sure they are put on straight

other than that the plastic must just be to thin or poreous that moisture juss condenses inside the lights no matter what....hard to trouble shoot when the light isnt in front of me...

...good luck bro
