Water in fog light

I got a 98 XLT and from the outside of my driver side fog light I see a little water sitting in there usually rains. Any help on how to get the housing out and get the water out? I have HID's and dont want them to get damaged

Use a bottle brush that's what I used to clean the inside of my foglights

You don't need to bake fog lights. They come apart
