Moisture In My Headlight

It seems like over night after a few days of rain I have moisture on the inside lens of my Raxiom driver side headlight. I don't see any visible cracks in it either. Is there a way to fix this problem without having to replace the whole headlight

Well you are at least going to have to pull the light and re-seal it so it doesn't happen again. To absorb the moisture you can stuff a dessicant pack in there after you pull it (just make sure you can get it back out) and see if that absorbs the moisture.

Its good practice to ALWAYS seal aftermarket housings although I have had tremendous luck with DEPO stuff on my CSVT, my 98 and the current DEPO projectors I'm putting in were sealed up very tight. Raxioms... I've been less than impressed with them.

Throw em in the oven,reseal em and be done. There are tons of videos on youtube. I've done this on a 07 Charger,pretty simple.

Yeah but if they used crap glue it might still not hold. If you REALLY want to make sure it never happens again, bake them open, apply 3M Butyl Tape and then bake them closed again as it probably shows in the vid.

However if it was me in a Coyote I'd be getting ahold of some factory HID housings/ballasts/HIDs and swapping them in vs Raxioms. You will not get a better headlight setup in a Coyote and I can promise you that.
