No where. Moisture got In last night. Never happend with these new ones. So I got it out and seal up a little spot that seamed to be the problem. Well tonight I got up and checked it and it looked like God got mad at me and flooded my damn lights. I'm about to just throw silicone all over it lol

Usually you just seal them all the way around where the lens connects to the housing. Some aftermarket need an additional seal where the moldings meet up. Also, check the rubber seals around the lights themselves maybe?

Just give up man, even if the leak is smaller than you can see moisture will find a way in.

Only way to fix is OEM FORD headlamps !
Aftermarkets will leak no matter what

+1 and a monkey could remove these headlights in under a minute haha, moisture occasionally get into mine, when it does, I pop it off, take a hair dryer to it through the bulb hole, pop it back in, all finished in under 10 minutes.

I had that problem a ton of my fox body with the aftermarket headlights I was buying. I always sealed around the entire headlight regardless of how good it looked and made sure I used black silicone so I could see exactly how thick it was going on. I never had any issues after that!
