Unhappy Water getting in headlights

Has anyone had problems with water getting in their headlights, I took my 99 GC for a steam clean the other day and was washing the bugs and stuff off the plastic lens etc. By the time I got home the lefthand light was fogged...I thought nothing of it as I was using the high pressure gun up close and thought a little would get in there.
I removed the light and dried it out and inspected it for a crack or two........I found nothing wrong with it so refitted it.
It rained lastnight and I noticed the lens was fogged up again, has anyone had any problems like this if so where was yours leaking?

The "seal" between the cover and the reflector may be compromised. You could take the housing back out and apply something all the way around to seal it with. That's condensation inside the housing. Is the gasket on the bulb socket in good condition?
