    Assuming there wasn't another cause for the water getting in there again, then you did not get it all out. It evaporated into the warm air and cleared and then just condensed out again when it went cold.

    Do the same again. Take the covers off and let it all evaporate. Then change the air by blowing it with an air line, or get the vacuum cleaner up to one of the openings and suck the moist air out.

    Reassemble and it should be OK.

    You can just do the same on a windy day, and they usually clear, as the air gets changed.

    Hairdryer for a while and then some silica gel packets taped together stuck inside.
    Also remove the rear twist caps and you will see a foam seal inside the rim. Take this out carefully squirt some sealant in the groove and replace the foam seal squashing it into place. Leave to dry and then replace onto the light.

    Then stick a couple of those silica gel packs in there to absorb any moisture
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
