Water in headlight

How do you fix this?

I noticed it after a rainy day of driving, then a very rainy night camped.

I have the same issue on my 2018 . Pulling into the camp ground someone told me that I had a headlight out.

I wrote to Forest River for directions on how to correct this and they sent me free replacements. Hela 90mms! Even though I'm totally out of warranty.

Now to switch them out. Hela's instructions are to snap the four round studs into the plastic anchors on the vehicle. Sounds simple enough. But, it doesn't discuss removing the old one. Do they pull straight out of the adapters?

Has anyone done this, I'd appreciate any advice before I break something. Should I use a small wonder-bar to pry it out?

Headlight Repair.

I received my replacement headlight and replace it while on the road.
If you haven't replaced it let me know.

Haven't done it yet. My question is do the round studs really just snap out and snap in? Does it take some persuasion?

The way I removed it was by backing out the light by turning the 4 headlight adjustments screws moving the headlight back away from the mounting bracket.
Then you will see 4 screws holding the light bracket into place. Take a small ratchet wrench
And remove the mounting bracket. With the light attached to it.
Don't try to pop out the light!

I'll send you some pictures as soon as I have better cell service.
