I was told that if you find the leak or even where the drainage whole is on the headlight housing you could take a hair dryer and stick it up against that opening and it should flush out the condensation, then seal it back up, your fine after that. This would require you to take out your headlight to properly seal it back up, but that not too bad.

When I got my new headlights, there was a small paper with it that said it may build up condensation from temperature changes. cold weather on the outside and a warm temperature on the inside of the lens. said it would only last for several days if it took place and woul eventually clear. Of course, that's one of the reasons i replaced mine, cuz the right one kept building moisture.
