Default Leaky headlights

What should I do? Every time it rains/gets a good washing, moisture appears inside the lens. I was planning on waiting for a day there was no moisture and sealing them with silicon around the lens. Or do you think it'* more likely the bulb isn't plugged in correctly on either one? I just thought of that while typing lol.

more than likely you jus have either a small hole or crack in the lens somewhere or your seal around the bulb isnt airtight. i went through 3 bulbs because of that on my mini-van

Lightly seal around the splice where the lens is attached to the reflector housing, then put a tiny dab of RTV around the back where each bulb attaches. It'* most likely your amber lamp seal that is the problem. The headlamps seal pretty good.
