Time and sunlight will make the condensation go away. Once that's done, get it re-sealed. It happened to my past vehicle.

Take the rear cover off and use a hairdryer to remove most of the moisture. Reseal with a silicone sealant

You don't have to open head lights to install lux..... All he had to do was put the cap on tightly...... Fail

I concur ^^^. You don't have to even remove the wheels. Just turn them all the way to the left or right to get access to remove the wheel lining. Most likely the cover wasn't properly replaced.

I installed my Lux eyes and now have the problem on both headlights. I made sure the covers went back on tight. What gives.
