    I would guess you just didnt get everywhere on the one headlight. Take it back off, take BOTH covers off and seal the crap out of it. I had to redo mine once too.

    Also the seal between the headlight lens and headlight housing can go bad. Its harder to seal but if you look at it very closely you should be able to see where it is leaking. then you can seal it too. you can seal that seal just like the rear dust covers but you have to be more careful so you cant see it when your done.

    Re: How to fix or clear my headlights

    Hi I had the condensation problem on my front headlights for STS V8 1SF. It took only a few minutes to pull the bumper off. Pulled out the plastic headlamp unit. cleaned it. the rubber gaskets in both my units were collapsed. continued to clean and dry, there is an air breather-filter housing where the gaskets were suspect. I recall the spongelike filter was also wet. Reinstalled. no probs for 2 years, and mine sits outside north of Phila.

    Agree with 02603sec. I pulled the headlight (three times, so I can do it fast now) and the last time dried it out, replaced the door gaskets on both door, sealed everything with sealer from a tube, reinstalled, and she has stayed dry. Its an outdoors car, so it gets all the weather, dry, wet, and hail. The only bad area is the top of the plastic shell, the part near the top of the fender is getting some fade and need some sanding, buffing, and sealing.
