If your housing is black, and not legit TypeR, then most likely it was a DIY job and the person who did it did not reseal it properly. You would have to reopen it and add more silicon glue.

Or your light sockets are loose or damaged and letting moisture in. Could be cause if you have HID. Might need an xclip to hold it tighter

This. It has worked wonders for me to just throw 10 packets in each side. I work at a pharmacy. If you know someone who does, they open at least 15 bottles a day, all of which have at least 1 to 4 packets of silica in them.
isn't that treating the symptom, rather than curing the disease?

the right answer is to seal it properly, however that's accomplished.

take it off, bake it in an oven or in the sun to get rid of the condensation and then reseal it.

I tried the silica packs but water kept coming back and that was the only way that I could solve the problem. It's really not bad to take off the bumper and headlight, pretty straight forward.

good luck.

I'm retrofitted, and the back part of the projector sticks out. I had to tear a rubber boot to get it to fit over it as best I could. However since it is larger, there isn't a perfect seal. I still want to be able to access my bulbs and clips, thats why I had to resort to this.
