Condensation in headlights?

Hey guys, just bought some brand new LED Halo projector headlights for my 06 mustang. Before installing I sealed them, or so I thought. Noticed some condensation or a foggy patch in the bottom corner...How can I get rid of that and better prevent it from happening again?

Help! Picture below.

Seal it better. It has to be getting in there somewhere. Maybe u just missed a little spot, that's all it takes. Good luck.

Put some silicone around them and make sure the bulbs are tight against the housing.

I requested a new headlight and I'll return the bad one. Is silicone the best type of sealant for headlights?

sometimes you have to reseal them especially if they are aftermarket, not sure what stuff people use (silicon perhaps will do it)

I would use clear silicone, the G-a seal. Its spelled different bit that's how its pronounced. Like $5 a tube.

It's a construction sealant

Same thing happened to mine. It's most like the bulb/housing part that's allowing moisture in.

moisture in head lights

I had the same problem with my custom headlights. Pulled the plastic lens covers off (make sure you get ALL of the old sealant off). I used windshield sealant to reseal the lens covers. This stuff when setting up actually seeks out gaps. Haven't had any problems since.
