When I worked for Ford, this was a pretty common problem (condensation rather than leaking headlamp seals).
The 'cure' was to remove the sidelight bulb, switch the main beams on, and place a black piece of paper over the lens - the unit would heat up, condensation would evaporate (escaping through the hole - a bit like a pressure cooker), switch off, replace the sidelight bulb, and it should all be fine.
I'm not suggesting anyone try this at home, its just for info!
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
