Take them off and seal them

Didn't think I'd have to seal the fogs

Yeah I've had to seal just about every replacement light housing I have ever bought. Just use some urethane or window-weld and seal around the entire edge and wipe away the excess. Pretty easy!

Is there a way I can remove my lens to get the water out of my fog lights?

You might be able to let them sit in the sun all day so it dries up

I had the same issue on my headlights, I took them out when I quit driving it at the start of winter and let them sit inside for about a week. That's when I sealed them up and all is good.

My headlights are aftermarket FWIW.

Could I just use a hair dryer to get the condensation out?

You could give it a try. Just be careful adding heat to the lens. It could possibly discolor them or even melt them. The heat that hair dryers put out is pretty effin hot. It didn't take longer than a day or two for mine to clear up in the house. It took me a week because of my work schedule. I let them sit one extra day to let the sealant completely cure. I used clear RTV all the way around the lens cover.
