Moisture in my foglights: WTF!

    One of my foglights keeps getting small amounts of moisture inside the lens; it ruins the 'look' of the light and I presume it hampers the performance as well. I am sure that other Taco owners have experienced this problem and I am looking for the solution. My affected foglight gets moisture on the reflective lens (reflector) as well as on the inside surface of the plastic lens. I have left the lights on for a period to 'burn off' the moisture but it reappears regularly. I put these foglights in myself over a year ago and the problem has just appeared. I will also add that I have noticed that both of the reflectors in my lights have small air holes that are located at the top of the reflector; I believe thats the only way they could be installed. Any / all ideas for fixing this are greatly appreciated. BTW I did a search here but did not find any fixes for this problem. '10 Tacoma 4CYL reg cab man trans. ;)
