hole crack???

:rofl: There's so many ways I can take those words out of context!

But seriously, they were probably sealed poorly. It may not be visually evident, but somewhere along the seal is at least one gap in the silicone. Yo can buy silicone glue at any hardware or automotive store to lay an extra seal around the edge.

If its just general condensation, then thats probably not necessary. Opening the headlight up all the way is kind of a messy and annoying process, but if you're up to it, feel free. But if not, the heat from the bulbs will evaporate it. But I reccomend you evaporate that condensation prior to resealing the housing cuz if not, you're basically trapping that condensation in there which means when it cools off its more likely some will come back.

heres the link on the DIY Headlights (http://www.honda-acura.net/forums/showthread.php?threadid=56277) which tells you how to safely open the housing
