go out on a nice sunny day, take out the bulbs and all the rubber shit and let it sit in the sun all day. Or you can take it apart and clean it, it'd be much cleaner if you do it that way. If you put it in the sun remember to seal it w/ silicone sealant or something when completely dry

did you open your headlight? coz if you did, you may want to reseal it again. oh and make sure there aren't any cracks on the housing make sure it's sealed tight.

I had few condesation once coz painted my housing but that was because I didn't put sealer back. Now that I did...there's no more condesation buildup in my headlight.

Open it up, clean it, and reseal it.

There is a guide in the install section thumbsup

If you're going to open it up via the oven method, might as well take the time to paint them as well...

aftermarket headlamps are pretty much nonexistent..

unless you were/are willing to pay top dollar cause the ones that are out there cost a lot frown

here's an example.. happywink

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthrea...#Post1870259479

$650.00 JDM headlamps from KARacing
m-style headlights are like $4000

check the thread for more examples..

you can always drill a small whole to let the incoming air escape stopping the condensation build up thumbsup
