Try changing the rubber seal and see if that solve your problem. I've seen a post where small insects some how got into the housing as well so you know the rubber seal is no longer doing it's job.
I had the same problem with heavy condensation after going through car wash... It burnt out the bulb and I had to replace the control unit.... $1,200.00. Dealers says they can't find the source of water entering... After a week the bulb went out again, now the dealer wants another $2,500.00 for a complete headlight assembly...
Is there a better ( cheaper solution)
