take off the rubber cover and bulb and let cool air in. Then it should go away.

I may sound dump but asking wouldn't hurt, where's the rubber cover? Is that around the bulb? How removing that would help anyway?? I have the single projectors and the bulbs are rather sittin loose in the sockets meaning no need for me to remove it??

i learned that if you use a hair dryer it will leave little water spots on the inside of the clear lense. If i was you i would clear them, and in the process wipe off the lense with a rear soft rag.

normally its moisture buildup and letting the air in should fix it.

one of my lights was fogged up pretty bad after the heavy rain. thanks to me doing the DIY clearning headlight mod and me not sealing it well enough. i just opened them up again and cleaned them out and painted them all nice. i resealed them this time with a window/door silicon so hopefully they wont have the problem again. but if you never opened your headlights, i'm guessing it's getting moisture from the back where the bulb is, check the rubber cover around the bulb for damage or improper seal.
