can you fix water in the headlights problem?
 
Get a lot of condensation inside my headlights just want to know if there is something I can do to fix that or do I just have to buy new headlights?

Consider replacing the rubber gaskets for the clear plastic headlight covers.

Also, check for cracks in the covers, and make sure the bulb covers/boots on the back sides of the headlights are intact and in place.

Is there anywhere to buy the gaskets and bulb boots other than the dealer?

Yes, look up the part numbers on realoem.com and paste them into pelicanparts.com.
