    It's normal. You adjust the passenger side seperately afterwards. It's basically so you can move them both up and down the same if needed for reversing etc. The very early Vecs didn't do it (my old '03 plate didn't for example) but they changed it later on.

    Yeah, at home I only need the p/side one down, so I push the button for that, keep forgetting to put it back when I go out.

    The headlights tend to mist up if the rubber caps aren't put back on properly after changing the bulbs. Way more common on pre-facelifts than post.

    Simply wait for a nice warm, dry day. Park facing the sun. Open the bonnet, take off the bulb covers, take out the bulbs. Shut the bonnet and lock the car. Leave it for a couple of hours and the heat of the sun will cause the water to evaporate and leave via the bulb holes. If it's not sunny, you can use a halogen lamp or hair dryer - but don't get too close, the headlights are plastic. You can at a push do it by using the headlight main beam bulbs to heat it up, but I found it worked better using an external heat source.
    Then refit the bulbs and covers.

    also the use of the good ole silicon gel bags put inside the lights......works wonders for the fogs ...works wonders for the headlights too.

    The silica gel bags work too - but remember to take them out once they've absorbed the water. Otherwise when they get hot, it'll just come out again and condense on the cold plastic again!

    I found it more reliable to drive the water out once with gentle heat, then make sure all the seals are in place so it can't get back in again.
