Tried the owner's section and did a search, but no info yet, so I'm posting to this area. Headlamp has water condensing. Bulbs seem tight in the sockets. Have not pulled bulbs yet. Any suggestions?

I would think that you have a leak in the fixture. You might have to pull it if it continues to be a problem and find a crack or bad seam in the molding. You might be able to seal the area and reinstall.

My right front headlight has had condensation, never goes away. They tell me they will have to install a new light to take care of the problem.

Try drilling a small hole in the bottom back of the reflector. This will allow the moisture to drain out and air to get in. Make sure it is in an area where water dosn't splash onto it. You may even use a small plastic tube to prevent water entry.

I'd try looking for a seam leak first before drilling, happens very often in auto headlamp fixtures. Just vacuum out the moisture first, reverse the air to blow into the fixture and use soapy water looking/listening for a seam or fracture leak. If you find one great... if not do the drilling if the fixture fills up.
