Headlight Seal Question

I am going to take apart one of my headlights because it is leaking, and I need to know what kind of Glue/Adhesive/ect. would work best when putting the headlight back together?
Thanks

please use BLACK 100% silicone sealer/adhesive, it's only 4 bucks a tube, available at any lowes, and one will do both headlights.

I didn't use anything when I put them back together. Just the epoxy that was already there. I had a condensation problem with the drivers headlight so I used goop automotive. Here's what it looks like. The nice thing is, it doesn't collect dust like silicone. Try it withouth first and you might get lucky. My passenger side light has always been good. I used this stuff AFTER it was out of the oven. A few days later when the light was cool. I can't recomend it for inside the oven as I don't know what would happen.
