Moisture in Head Light

Does anyone know why my left headlight constantly has moisture in it and the right one has none? I can't say it's been that way since I bought it but it's been that way for at least 4 of the last 6 weeks of ownership.
Thanks for any help.

Alpine coaches had a huge problem with this and they were sealed with silicone around the edges. Somewhere there is an air gap that moisture can get into. Pull the unit off and check if there are any gaskets between the bulb fixture and the unit. Look for cracks and silicone them up.
Hope this helps.

ED...........these sealed headlamp's have a rubber vent tube on the backside for ventilation. It's possible that the one with moisture was mashed somehow when it was installed causing the vent tube not to breathe, JMHO. I would pull the lamp out and check it......happy trails and travel safe.
