    Is the back cover still on?

    Happened to mine once, the back cover had dropped off


    Edit>> Just re-read thread . No holes in the cover? Do they dry out with the lights on?

    stick a gel sash in the back of the headlight to remove the mostiour also run with the lights on to help it my guess is you have damp getting in somewhere happened to me when my cap was not on fully so worth a double check

    Both of mine were a bit like that when I got the car, but not quite as bad. I took the rubber bulb caps/covers off for a week or so and let them dry out naturally. I then put the cap/cover back on, and they have both been fine since.

    I know you can dry them out quicker using a hairdryer etc, but to be honest I reckon that doing that just keeps the problem going if there is any dampness in the air. The hot surface tends to just form condensation on it again as it cools in my experience.
