My new purchase 59 plate zetec has really bad condensation in the drivers side headlight.
I have took if off, hair dryered it to get all the droplets out and it's done it again although only at the bottom of the light this time. It's still under warrenty so I will take it back.
Is this a common problem?

I replaced the headlights to osrams a week ago so I don't think it's my fault as the other side is fine. Is there a hole in the seal somewhere ?

Have something to contribute?

Make sure the seals are seated properly on the rear caps.

Double checked the seals they are all fine.
I got a 30 day warrenty with the car. I guess I can ring them and find out !
