Headlight issue

All of a sudden my DS headlight has a lot of moisture buildup in it. I cannot see any damage like a rock hit or anything to cause this. Lamps themselves are fine. What options are there for repair or? Our X3 is out of factory warranty, but we have a aftermarket warranty, I need to see if this is covered or if our glass coverage insurance includes this. I suspect not.
Comment and suggestions please.

Mein Auto: 328i
My 328i also had a lot of moisture built up in it. It was in warranty so I took it in. They disassembled it and did some sort of leak testing, and told me it passed the tests and BMW considers some moisture to be potentially normal if there is no crack or leak detected.

Maybe just watch it carefully to see if it recurs? My light has had no moisture since then. I guess you can get it leak tested, but out of warranty who knows how much it might cost. They kept my car for a whole day to first dry it out then leak test it.
