Water in headlight.

Noticed some water inside my drivers side headlight housing. It looks like the glass is held on by several clips, is that true? (Haven't tried prying them off yet) it looks like at least one clip may be missing.
Can someone confirm my clip assumption and maybe tell me where I could look for parts for the assemblies if needed?
Thanks in advance

I can't comment on the clips. If you remove the whole headlight assembly, you will most likely find number or name of the manufacturer. If you use Google to search for that number, you'll likely find what vehicle it was made for and replacement assemblies. No RV manufacturer uses custom lights, they use ones made for other vehicles.

If you remove the headlight, you may be able to remove the bulb in the back of the reflector and empty the water out, blow it dry, and reseal the unit. Often water will damage the reflector and often the best strategy is to just replace it.

If it's like mine the bulb screws in from the back. You can take it out and get a new gasket for the bulb and dry the inside out or drill SMALL holes under the lens to let the water drain out and dry out.

Drilling the small holes is also what I'd do...

It looks like the lense below the headlight that includes the turn signal has GM 16026 on it but is hard to read. Look real close at all of the numbers and letters and do a search on them. Take a look at 2004-06 Chevy Tahoe headlights. Looks really close. Just found this on Ebay.. 99-02 Silverado and 00-06 Tahoe is what you probably want.

I just went through this for my 2000 HR Endeavor - Found out that it is a 95-01 Ford Explorer headlight system.

Thanks Eagle! That's much appreciated.
And thanks to all who offered comments.

I have a similar problem in my 08 SeaBreeze on left side. W22 37'
My issue is how to access the headlight. Looks like the tin wear by front tire is hinged to allow access but I'm not sure. Anyone happen to know?
