water in my head light lens

well last night i discovered that i had water in head light lens in my 89 after it rained for three days straight and when i drooped my friend off last night going up one of the step *** hills and going over run off at the top of the hill on he lane yesterday it literally blew up, my accessory lights have already went out on the way to his house and while fixing that i noticed about an inch an a half or water in the lens, just drilled a very small hole in the bottom corner to drain it, so any idea were it is leaking at? and it had condensation in it previously and the drivers side also has condensation in it

This happened in my 90 ranger. Drill a few small holes and drain the water out and then let them sit in the sun and get out all the condensation. After that get some clear RTV and seal them back up.
