My original headlights and fog. And none of the do-it-yourself wood clean it probably because it was on the inside I figure. Anyway Honda dealer wanted over $450 for each headlight! But they suggested I buy from an aftermarket and I got them for about 250 / headlight. But the main problem was it cost $230 to have the headlights replaced because you have to remove the whole front end of the car which is ridiculous and sometimes I hate Engineers. That being said one of my headlights is fucking up with moisture inside not sure where it's coming from but I think it's just trapped in there it wasn't there when I first had it replaced. So I'm opening up the back end by carefully removing the bulb sockets and I'm going to get a hair dryer and blow some air in there and perhaps talk some paper towels in there to soak that water up replaced the bulbs and hopefully this fixes it.

In one of his videos, Scotty Kilmer says just drill a hole in the lowest point of the headlight assembly to let water accumulation out by gravity and avoid fogged up lights.

I've never tried this myself, and I really don't know if it's a good idea.

you get out all the moisture take some gasket maker and re-run a bead over the entire edge of the headlight where the caulking meets the lense.. You have a pin hole in the sealant thus allowing moisture into the lense. I had the same issue on my drivers side .. didn't have anymore issues with moisture afterwards.
