Sorry John. Confusion here.

Ok, WHERE is the water? Between the outer layer and the lens? Is it in where it'* delaminating? If so, you're hosed. Tint and forget.

Has anyone tried using a heat gun or similar device and heating the laminate to reseal it?

I've got an extra set I should experiment with.

Isn't the black stuff laminated to the outer layer, then there is the colored lense that falls out if you pop the housing open? I think that you can open the housing, dry it off, possibly maybe try to "relaminate" the black parts, put it back together, and seal it real good.
