Condensation inside the front headlight?

Is it normal to have moisture build up inside the front head lights?

I have the LED version.

Is it just one of your headlights or both?

I'm assuming what's most likely the case is that there is a crack on your headlight, exposing the inside of your headlight to air and moisture to get inside. My friend went through it once and just ordered new oem headlights and replaced them.

I've experienced some minor condensation in my rear taillights when washing my cars. It all drys out pretty quickly. Should I be concerned? What should I look for in terms of signs of long term damage? I'm still under warranty so I'd just take it to the dealer for replacement. I think I'll take some pics the next time it happens and then see what the dealer has to say about it.

I don't have any and never have. Those who do, check to make sure all of your bulbs/sockets are fully seated and that the gaskets/orings on them are not missing or damaged. These are mostly sealed units, no reason to have any condensation in them. One drop of condensation on a hot bulb can cause it to shatter and fail.

I would respectfully disagree, it has never ever happened to me on any car, new or old!

I only get condensation when I roll into my underground parking garage.
I have the LED headlights.

Hmm, maybe i'll mention it to the dealer the next time.
I don't get condensation when I wash the car or it rains (not that I've noticed anyways)

Agreed. It should not be happening at all.

I just bought a 2015 Accord Sport today from a VW dealer. Water - like 1/4 of the housing - in drivers side lower light. Some moisture in the headlights. 23,000 miles on the car, so still under warranty. Will Honda warranty cover this if there is no damage? The car has not been wrecked, per the CarFax.

Are the headlight bulbs fully seated in the socket? If they're loose, that could cause a leak.
