Default Moisture in the Headlights

Been having this problem for years on our 08 EQ. Of course the stealer didn't want to cover this defect so we just been changing the bulbs. I'm done buying bulbs twice/yr and I'm planning on drying out the headlights and reseal them with something. Anybody have this problem or a solution? I did find new headlights for about $250 which I didn't think was too bad.

Ah, I just found an old thread on this issue. I'm not about to put my lenses in the oven, It's looks like I'll be buying a new set of lenses..

I've seen some who even used a hair dryer to heat up the gasket to separate the plastic lens.

All you need to do is drill a couple of extra holes in the back of the headlight to let them breath never have a problem again

Is there a "best spot" to put the holes? I'm suffering from the same issue too.
