Condensation in litronic headlight

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

usually turning on the headlights for a while is enough heat to evaporate the condensation inside the headlight....or you can use a hair dryer or heat gun to evaporate the condensation from the outside....
