Condensation in litronic headlights

Itís been raining hard and today I noticed the inside of one headlight has condensation. Is there a seal that can go bad and can be replaced? About to park the fleet for the winter so this might make the project list. Any advice out there? 2001 Boxster S

I'm pretty sure the headlights are vented (for heat dissipation) and because of that, moisture can get into them (from condensation). This usually dries out as you drive.

Once things dry out (and Florence is gone), I would turn your headlights on (to warm them up), and take it for a drive. That should remove the moisture.

If it's anything more than light condensation its possible a seal has gone bad. But I think that's unlikely.
