water in my headlight

I noticed that my passenger side head light assembly is fogging up after i did my own BHLM. I thought i was careful enough and used a copious amount of silicone sealant around the edge but alas, still water got in.
any ideas on what i should do?

Is the rubber boot around the headlight completely on? Did you add sealant before or after you put the halves together? Are the caps for the vents back in?

Try using 3M Windo-Weld next time.

When I got water in one of my gauges on my boat I used a hair dryer and it dried right up just don't hold it there too long. As far as long term you may have to pull it apart and do it again if it's not the boot.
