Question '05 Dolphin front headlights removal

Folks, the right front headlight enclosure has about a half-inch of water in it after it rains. The bulb still works, but I want to stop the water accumulation. I noticed 4 stainless steel spring clips around the cover but when I pop them off I still cannot remove the cover (even by prying around the edges with a spade tip screwdriver).


Is there some way to remove the whole assembly so I can determine where the water is leaking into the cover?


Here are some images fo the headlights:

I took the easy way our, just drilled a couple of small holes at the bottom. If you want, reseal with a small dab of sealant, or leave open.

Remove the headlight ass'y completely from the back side, by removing the nuts from the backside and sliding the whole ass'y out. By removing the whole headlight ass'y, you can work on it on the bench.

Had some accumulation in our taillights on our DSDP due to condensation. Newmar said to drill some small holes in the bottom of them. I did and haven't had any more problems.
