sounds like a poor seal, might be worth contacting the seller.

Re: Water in sidelight

if u still have the old one id have a go at resealing it,
Most use the oven on a low/medium heat and keep a eye on it until the glue/sealer goes soft and you can pull it apart,
Then reseal making sure you clean all the old cack off.

Re: Water in sidelight

Glad you got sorted, My headlight used to do that until I did the oven trick. Used to annoy the hell out of me everytime it rained it would be full of condensation. I'd be running out the house when it stopped with the misses hairdryer
