Fogged Headlamps

52 plate WRX Wagon, with earliest Blobeye headlamps... They always look clouded and it seems to be internal condensation.

Can I remove them easily enough, to dry them out? Is there a fault causing them to fog? What can I do to prevent them fogging?

I'd go the whole way and follow a detango process and detango them too. Just add some 3m strip caulk on reassembly and they shouldn't leak again. I did mine in the oven to separate them and it turned out great

Read this. It's popular on blobs and I've done it to mine. The 3m strip caulk is what the manufacturer used to seal it in the factory. You could just add some sealant

I chose the respray the chrome framework that stays on the headlight side to matt black to improve the look too and used silvatec bulbs to keep the indicator light orange. If you dont detango the method should sort your leaks
