Condensation in my headlight

Hi all I bought my car last november it's a 2k gt cel and I absolutely fell in love but come this spring whenever the humidity came around there is all kinds of condensation in the head light. angry angry angry angry and the dealership around here says that the seal is broken and I need to buy a new head light. Which according to them will cost me like $250 for the f*^&%*@ thing. Does anyone have any information on this or how it can be fixed? please advise cry cry cry

I've changed both of mine under warraunty is yers gone? Our lights arent water tight any ways there is a breather on the bottom take out all yer bulbs and let them dry out and make sure the foam breather cover is on them.

lots of people have this probem. Also you could take your headlight apart and make sure the glue seals all the way around.

mine did the same and although the dealer said it wasn't under warranty i complained all the way to the general manager and got a replacement.

installed myself by taking off the bumper (took about 1/2 hour). try satoshi's technique first.

if you take the light apart search this site for the steps to reseal them.
