take them out and reseal them with Automotive Goop.

be sure to dry them out under the sun long enough.

mine were fucked up SOOOOO BAD, but i fixed them.

make sure you have an entire day to do this tho.

i found a big long gap between my headlights when i took them off.

Yeah I had that problem too and my warrenty came up like 2 weeks before I really noticed it. and it was bad so I called my friend at a toyota dealership and asked him about it and he told me to come in and they might goodwill warrenty it. So I went in, they checked it out and gave me a new one for free! It was quite nice, I guess it is a problem with the headlights for lots of people.

Mine get water in them too. The previous owner put some halogens in there and I guess they did not seal them up very well. Can this cause any problems or is it just a cosmetic thing?

follow the guide. do what DiabloGTS and Rob said.

i didnt remove my front bumper to take off my headlights. i also washed my headlights with soapy water and let them dry under the sun.

be sure to use Automotive or Household Goop to reseal both headlights because it wont collect dirt & dust.

also...use a heardryer to let the glue dry faster.

i needed a whole day to finish both headlights.


GOOD LUCK!
