I think there is a crack in my headlight because there is condensation on the inside of it and I know if i keep it like it is it might burn the bulb out and I do not really want to buy new bulbs so i guess my question is what exactly do i need to buy and who has the best price

There is a thread on STS Headlight R & R around here somewhere... Complete replacement can be expensive and many privately available parts (eBay, etc.) can be damaged in some way. I urge caution. Gather as much as information as you can find.

Do you have pooled water or just condensation on the interior surfaces?

it started as a little haziness and has turned into medium sized water droplets on the inside of the light cover

It sounds like you caught it fairly early. The water may not have done much damage yet. A dealer might not even consider it 'excessive' as some require to honor under warranty.

Search for the remove and repair headlight thread. I think it last came up a few months ago. It might even be in FAQ (4th Sticky Thread).

Thanks for the suggestion...I will look at that thread because my car is out of warranty so I will have to do it on my own
