    Sounds like the rear cover hasn't been replaced properly. With the cover in place the headlamps should be watertight and therefore not let dampness in to cause the problem.

    I doubt you will get a warranty replacement unless there is a physical defect causing the unit to allow water ingress.

    In a word, no, unless there is actually water inside rather than a small amount of misting. Its actually mentioned in the manual that some misting can occur on the headlight lens, and should clear after the lights have been on for a little while.
