Default Help: water condensation in my headlight

I have a little water in one of my STi headlights. How can I dry it out ?

Once it's dry, I'll seal all the seams with windshield sealer.

Thanks, Edvig

I've never taken apart an STi headlight unit, but based on the oem GD/GG impreza's headlight, one way would be to:
(1) unplug all connectors
(2) remove the eniter headlight assembly from the car
(3) remove the bulb where condensation occurs
(4) air the headlight unit in a dry, warm, ventilated area
(5) re install

Actually, I'm surprised there is condensation at all to begin with. Perhaps one of the bulbs are not securely fastened, allowing moisture to be trapped inside?

The back of the light was cracked when it was shipped to the first owner of the lights. I though I had sealed it well...but I guess not.

Thanks for the advice.
