    I'd take it to the dealer. Use that bumper to bumper warranty.

    im sure you can easily take the bulb out and blow dry the fog light housing . but like they said youre under warranty still so make the dealer replace them.

    I have a 2013 and noticed one of the tail lights had some moisture when I washed my truck. One dealership said that was normal so I called BS and called another dealership who replaced it for me without hessitation. I just took plenty of pictures with my phone and showed it to the service advisor.

    So if that dealership is giving you hell, I would go to another one.

    all i have to do to get the moisture out is turn my fog lights on for a while. id imagine its a gasket thats leaking. i havent taken them apart yet to see. i was just wondering if anyone else had this problem as well. it happened when i changed out my fog light bulbs and installed HID bulbs in their place. no big deal im sure ill figure something out. i was just curious to see who else had this issue and what they did to fix it

    Check all the seals around the housing as obviously there is a small gap somewhere.

    And like OP said, have the dealer fix it if you can.
