Moisture in headlights ?!

The seal is failing or the rubber donut on the back is failing. If its the main the seal then I'd just go ahead and do an hid projector retrofit while you have them split open. Check the link in my sig for a how to guide, best mod I've done next to deleting and tuning

Thanks for the info however I don't trust myself enough to take those apart. I tend to brake stuff. I wonder if my premium care warranty would cover them

Premium care probably won't. I had the lights on my running boards getting moisture in them and they denied coverage.

I retrofitted mine too since I was getting moisture in there. Removed the chrome finish from the bowls and made them black. Looks like they are smoked now. Re-sealed them using butyl tape and no moisture since.
